Abstract: London, British Library, MS Harley 913, written in Ireland in the fourteenth century, contains works in English, French and Latin. Among these is the English satirical poem commonly referred to as Satire. Although not only amusing but also cleverly composed, it has never been particularly popular. The issue has been that many modern readers find it difficult to understand its allusions to the social milieu and customs of a medieval Irish town. This paper attempts to uncover these allusions and proposes that the poem portrays and satirizes religious, merchants, traders and artisans in an Irish marketplace on Michaelmas Day.
