    Abstract

    Pierce Egan the Younger has always been assumed to have been a conservative author. Yet recent research by Chris R. Vanden Bossche has highlighted his support for Chartism. This article develops Vanden Bossche's radical reading of Egan's "Wat Tyler" and applies it to two of his other medievalist novels, "Robin Hood" and "Adam Bell".
