“The play is accessible and often funny. The teenage sons of Henry II will appeal to students, and the fine Hepburn/O’Toole film is widely available on video. The play is decidedly modern: witty anachronisms and ironic asides make that fact impossible to forget. Even if the play is not your principal focus, this unit is a good introduction to medieval life and literature.” – The College Board

“Chapters in [The Lion in Winter & the Middle Ages volume of NEXUS] provide any creative teacher with a cornucopia of ideas from which to draw lessons that cross the lines that usually separate subjects.” – Gene Maeroff, Breaking Ranks, NASSP, National Association of Secondary School Principals
