Description - The Medieval Greek Romance by Roderick Beaton

This text provides basic information for the non-specialist about Greek fiction during the period 1071-1453, as well as proposing new solutions to literary problems in this field. The author applies methods of literary analysis to the material and the bridges of the artificial gap which has separated "Byzantine" literature, in a form of ancient Greek as both homogenous and of a high level of literary sophistication. Throughout, consideration is given to relations and interconnections with similar literature in Western Europe. As most of the texts discussed are not available in English translation, the argument is illustrated by lucid plot summaries and extensive quotation which are always accompanied by literal English renderings.
