Layamon

Layamon, early English poet who flourished in the 12th century, and was by his own account priest near Bewdley, on the Severn; was author of a long poem or chronicle of 32,250 lines called “Brut d'Angleterre,” and which is of interest as showing how Anglo-Saxon passed into the English of Chaucer.
