  1. Plot:
    -Crispin’s mother Asta has just died
    -Runs off into the woods

    -1377 in England (Feudalism!)
    -Feudalism: Created order by “enslaving” poor citizens in small manor/farmlands

    -Father Quinel (Priest): is kind and consoles Crispin in his grief. Priest was Asta’s only friend.
    -John Aycliffe: Steward (in charge of the manor when the Lord Furnival is absent) he commands Crispin to pay a death tax (Crispin’s Ox) which will impoverish (make him poor) Crispin. (“We all lived in fear of him [Aycliffe.]” p. 3.)
