Transcript
 Caxton left to others the production of texts to be used
in universities or monasteries throughout Europe.
Instead he concentrated on books in English, where
there was little competition.
 In his prefaces Caxton often wrote about his use of
English, especially in his own translations.
 In his first translation, theRecuyell of the Histories of
Troy, he mentioned the simplicity of his English, based
on his ‘broad and rude’ Kentish dialect.
