But for all of the... more...

The literary motif of the "allegorical knightly quest" appears repeatedly in the literature of the late medieval/early modern period, notably in Spenser, but has hitherto been little examined.

*On Anachronism* joins together Shakespeare and Proust as the great writers of love to show that love is always anachronistic, and never more so when it is homosexual.
