Cambridge History of Medieval English Literature by David Wallace

Book Description

This was the first full-scale history of medieval English literature for nearly a century. Thirty-three distinguished contributors offer a collaborative account of literature composed or transmitted in England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland between the Norman conquest and the death of Henry VIII in 1547. The volume has five sections: 'After the Norman Conquest'; 'Writing in the British Isles'; 'Institutional Productions'; 'After the Black Death' and 'Before the Reformation'. It provides information on a vast range of literary texts and the conditions of their production and reception, which will serve both specialists and general readers, and also contains a chronology, full bibliography and a detailed index. This book offers an extensive and vibrant account of the medieval literatures so drastically reconfigured in Tudor England. It will thus prove essential reading for scholars of the Renaissance as well as medievalists, and for historians as well as literary specialists.

Books By Author David Wallace

Europe by David Wallace Europe, Hardback (April 2016)

The first of this two-volume edition brings together leading scholars to offer the first full-scale literary history of Europe. Spanning the period 1348-1418, the volumes demonstrate in unprecedented detail what the free movement of European literature achieved through its variety, local peculiarity, and regenerative power.

Emergent Multiverse by David Wallace Emergent Multiverse, Paperback (May 2014)

David Wallace argues that we should take quantum theory seriously as an account of what the world is like-which means accepting the idea that the universe is constantly branching into new universes. He presents an accessible but rigorous account of the 'Everett interpretation', the best way to make coherent sense of quantum physics.

Capital of the World by David Wallace Capital of the World, Paperback (October 2012)

A portrait of New York City in the roaring twenties.

Strong Women by David Wallace Strong Women, Paperback (September 2012)

It takes a strong woman to secure bookish remembrance in future times. The four fascinating Catholic women considered here - Dorothea of Montau (1347-1394), Margery Kempe of Lynn (c. 1373-c. 1440), Mary Ward of Yorkshire (1585-1645), and Elizabeth Cary of Drury Lane (c. 1585-1639) - shock, surprise, and court historical danger.
