English Medieval Narrative in the Thirteenth and Fourteenth Centuries by Piero Boitani
Book DescriptionThis is a wide-ranging and detailed study of English narrative verse in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. Piero Boitani describes and analyses the undisputed masterpieces of narrative (such as the works of the Gawain poet, Langland, Gower and Chaucer), as well as the anonymous romances and specimens of religious and comic narrative which form the background to the better-known poems. The book is divided by literary genres or structural systems: chapters on the religious, comic and romance traditions are followed by a discussion of dream and visionary narratives and a chapter on story collections including those of Gower. The rest of the book is devoted to Chaucer, who mastered all these types.

Tragic and the Sublime in Medieval Literature, Paperback (February 2010)
Professor Boitani's latest book explores the areas of the tragic and the sublime in medieval literature by asking what medieval texts mean to modern readers.
Winged Words, Hardback (May 2007)
From the myths of the ancients to the poetry of Pindar and Yeats, this work traces the imprint of the human impulse to fly from premodern times up to the age of terrorism in both literature and history. It presents an account of how the myths of Pegasus and Icarus have persisted from classical to twentieth-century politics and literature.
