Companion to Medieval English Literature and Culture C.1350-C.1500 by Peter Brown
Book DescriptionA Companion to Medieval English Literature and Culture, c.1350-c.1500 challenges readers to think beyond a narrowly defined canon and conventional disciplinary boundaries. A ground-breaking collection of newly-commissioned essays on medieval literature and culture. * Encourages students to think beyond a narrowly defined canon and conventional disciplinary boundaries. * Reflects the erosion of the traditional, rigid boundary between medieval and early modern literature. * Stresses the importance of constructing contexts for reading literature. * Explores the extent to which medieval literature is in dialogue with other cultural products, including the literature of other countries, manuscripts and religion. * Includes close readings of frequently-studied texts, including texts by Chaucer, Langland, the Gawain poet, and Hoccleve. * Confronts some of the controversies that exercise students of medieval literature, such as those connected with literary theory, love, and chivalry and war.
