About this item

Literature and material culture form the main themes of this volume. Heraldic imagery is studied in medieval and early modern Tristan embroideries. Scribal modifications of Malory's Morte Darthur/ in the Winchester manuscript are analysed in an essay that considers the "bibliographic text" in its manuscript or print context. The use of space in the portrayal of emotion in the Middle English Stanzaic Morte Arthur demonstrates the sophistication of an undeservedly neglected poem. Friendship between Malory's knights is read through the lens of Cicero's De Amicitia and Malory's depictions of battle and war are scrutinized in relation to both chivalry and kingship. Chrétien's Lancelot is proposed as a new source for Malory's "Tale of Sir Gareth". An aversion to illegal torture in Arthurian romance is discussed as a reflection of specifically English attitudes to justice. Contributors include David Clark, Marco Nievergelt, Ralph Norris, Sarah Randles, Lisa Robeson, Richard Severe, Larissa Tracy
