About this product
- DescriptionThe papers in this book examine the thematic, structural and aesthetic relationship between medieval English literature and a wide variety of more recent modern texts. Some of the contributors re-examine the concepts of authority and representation in Chretien and Malory and of medieval romance and the modern vel, while Caxton s Morte Darthur is interpreted from the point of view of Norbert Elias; other focuses of interest are the love-death motif in nineteenth-century vels, the comic in contemporary British fiction, the literary representations of Arthurian characters (Galahad, Tristan, Gawain), and recent Beowulf translations. In addition, there are socio-historic and generic readings of Chaucer s Sir Thopas and of Troilus and Criseyde, of Ipomadon and Malory s Morte Darthur. Aspects of medieval heritage are uncovered in Horace Walpole, Furst Puckler-Muskau, Georg Kaiser, A. S. Byatt, David Lodge, Fay Weldon, Iris Murdoch, the Irish velist Eamonn Sweeney and the Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski, in William Gibson s cyberpunk vel Neuromancer and Peter Ackroyd s recent Clerkenwell Tales. In addition, there is a translation of Karl Heinz Goller s former essay on Chancer s Troilus and Criseyde.
