This volume contains eight essays by British scholars on a central theme in medieval literary studies. The period covered is from the twelfth to the fifteenth century; the texts involved range from the Brendan to a late-medieval treatise on princely behaviour. Despite the diversity of material explained, certain constants emerge: a preoccupation with language, an interest in the concept of genre and its implications, exploration of connections between literary texts and other cultural phenomena.
Professor D. A. Trotter is Head of the Department of European languages and Dean of the Faculty of Arts at the University of Aberystwyth.
