  • Das europäische Mittelalter ? ein eurasisches Mittelalter?by Hermann Kulke

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 21.00

    In light of transcontinental migrations and transcultural interconnections, it becomes clear that the European Middle Ages were neither a European phenomenon sui generis nor a period of "separated cultures." Instead, this era was marked by intense interdependencies, exhibiting characteristics of globalization that even predates the era of European... more...

  • Der traumatisierte Raumby Judith Kasper

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 140.00

    In "traumatized space," psychoanalysis and the spatial sciences converge. Europe emerges as a real and simultaneously phantasmic landscape of concentration camps. Literature unsettles all representations of this landscape. In stories of entrapment and exclusion with no way out, ruptures occur. The mission of philology is to validate such moments as... more...

  • Ovidian Bibliofictions and the Tudor Bookby Lindsay Ann Reid

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Ovidian Bibliofictions and the Tudor Book examines the historical and the fictionalized reception of Ovid?s poetry in the literature and books of Tudor England. It does so through the study of a particular set of Ovidian narratives-namely, those concerning the protean heroines of the Heroides and Metamorphoses. In the late medieval and Renaissance... more...

  • Constructions of Childhood and Youth in Old French Narrativeby Phyllis Gaffney

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    What do we know of medieval childhood? Were boundaries always clear between childhood and young adulthood? Was medieval childhood gendered? Scholars have been debating such questions over half a century. Can evidence from imaginative literature test the conclusions of historians? Phyllis Gaffney's innovative book reveals contrast and change in the... more...

  • Conflicting Femininities in Medieval German Literatureby Karina Marie Ash

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Drastic changes in lay religiosity during the High Middle Ages spurred anxiety about women forsaking their secular roles as wives and mothers for religious ones as nuns and beguines. This anxiety and the subsequent need to model an ideal of feminine behavior for the laity is particularly expressed in the German versions of Latin and French narratives.... more...

  • Inheritance Law and Political Theology in Shakespeare and Miltonby Joseph S. Jenkins

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Reading God's will and a man's Last Will as ideas that reinforce one another, this study shows the relevance of England's early modern crisis, regarding faith in the will of God, to current debates by legal academics on the theory of property and its succession. The increasing power of the dead under law in the US, the UK, and beyond-a concern of... more...

    Boydell & Brewer 2016; US$ 99.00

    Essays on topics of literary interest crossing the boundaries between the medieval and early modern period. more...

  • The Classicist Writings of Thomas Walsinghamby Sylvia Federico

  • Dreaming in Byzantium and Beyondby George T. Calofonos; Christine Angelidi

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 119.95

    Although the actual dreaming experience of the Byzantines lies beyond our reach, the remarkable number of dream narratives in the surviving sources of the period attests to the cardinal function of dreams as vehicles of meaning, and thus affords modern scholars access to the wider cultural fabric of symbolic representations of the Byzantine world.... more...

  • Otherworldly John Drydenby Jack M. Armistead

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Reminding readers of John Dryden?s persistent use of occult rhetoric, Jack M. Armistead argues that Dryden?s otherworldliness involves more than Christian apologetics, biblical typology, or intermittent borrowings from the supernatural materials in classical literature. Rather, it manifests throughout his career in occult materials drawn from many... more...
