Gender and the chivalric community in Malory's Morte d'Arthur by Dorsey Armstrong( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A lively and thought-provoking study of gender in the Arthurian community. It is at once theoretically sophisticated and highly readable, full of insightful close readings yet conscious of larger patterns of analysis."--Laurie Finke, Kenyon CollegeGender and the Chivalric Community in Malorys Morte dArthur reveals, for the first time in a book-length study, how Thomas Malorys unique approach to gender identity in his revisions of earlier Arthurian works produces a text entirely unlike others in the canon of medieval romance
Mapping Malory : regional identities and national geographies in Le morte Darthur by Dorsey Armstrong( Book )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While most criticism has treated romance's use of place as fantastic and essentially meaningless, our book argues that geography is a crucial element in Sir Thomas Malory's Morte Darthur; our analysis of the concerns of nation, region, borders, and identity in this text sheds new light on how Malory both understood the 'England' in which he was writing and how he imagined the 'Arthurian Community' he depicts in his text. The great knights in Le Morte Darthur come from regions where sovereignty is a vexed issue, and their rivalries, rather than being fictions of individuals, capture significant political divisions of the fifteenth century. Our work thus not only provides fundamental reinterpretations of Malory's book, but also places it in larger discussions of how regional and national identities developed at the end of the Middle Ages and the beginning of the Early Modern period"--

The focus then shifts to the art of rhetoric and the ways it can help you adapt your writing to a variety of situations.

King Arthur : history and legend by Dorsey Armstrong( Recording )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These 24 spellbinding lectures reveal the full scope of the Arthurian tradition, from its beginnings in post-Roman Britain to its extraordinary trajectory across the centuries and its latest incarnations in modern times. Your pathfinder in this world of mythic adventure and romance, Professor Armstrong, is one of the world's leading Arthurian scholars and the current editor-in-chief of the academic journal Arthuriana. Demonstrating both encyclopedic knowledge and an infectious passion for the subject, she leads you in tracing how the myth developed across time, clarifying many misunderstood aspects of the narrative, such as the origins of the Round Table and the figure of Merlin, the illicit love between Lancelot and Guenevere, and the varied manifestations of the magical Holy Grail. You'll discover how the legend was appropriated and assimilated by differing cultures, and how each writer and artist in the tradition reflected and commented, through the Arthurian narrative, on the concerns of their own time and place. The result is an illuminating look at one of the most engaging, entertaining, and influential legendary traditions the world has ever known."--From publisher

Magistra Doctissima : Essays in Honor of Bonnie Wheeler by Dorsey Armstrong( Book )

Telling tales and crafting books : essays in honor of Thomas H. Ohlgren( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great corpus that is medieval literature contains, at its very center, the tale. These verse and prose fictional narratives, as well as stories that are grounded in some degree of historical truth, are the foundation of what readers, scholars, and enthusiasts often point to as signifiers of the medieval age. These tales?from the skillfully crafted to the more rudimentary and plain?often make familiar to modern readers what seems so distant and foreign about the Middle Ages. This volume of essays focuses on the tale and its ability to create ?mirth,? what modern audiences would often define as ?happiness? or ?joy,? and the significance that the book has had on the transference of this mirth to audiences.00This volume also celebrates the scholarship of Thomas H. Ohlgren, a medievalist whose work encompasses a number of different areas, but at its center lives the power of the tale and its ability to create a lasting impression on readers, both medieval and modern
