Most widely held works by Karen Elaine Smyth
Imaginings of time in Lydgate and Hoccleve's verse by Karen Elaine Smyth( Book )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through a series of close readings of selected short poems and Lydgate's Troy Book, Fall of Princes, and Siege of Thebes and of Hoccleve's Regiments of Princes and Series, Smyth looks at expressions of time and examples of the authors' negotiation of time consciousness, illustrating how both poets manipulate a range of cultural narratives of time in order to create multiple and sometimes competing temporalities within a single poem
Medieval life cycles : continuity and change( Book )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this collection present new research into a variety of questions on birth, childhood, adolescence, adulthood, middle age, and old age, ordered in a more or less chronological manner according to the lifecycle. The volume exposes attitudes and representations of the lifecycle from the Anglo-Saxon period to the end of the Middle Ages as being full of inconsistencies as well as definitive categories, and of variation and stasis. This attests to the fact that medieval conceptions and representations of the stages of life and their interrelationships are much more nuanced and less idealized than is usually credited. Medieval conceptual, mental, artistic, cultural, and sociological processes are scrutinized using various approaches and methods that cross disciplinary boundaries. What is emphasized across the volume is that there were varying, context-dependent rhythms of continuity and change in every stage of life in the medieval period

Collaborative art making in rural communities by Karen Elaine Smyth( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The objective of this study was to investigate the ways the creation of a school garden at a rural elementary school impacted the school-as-community."
The fifteenth century by Linda Clark( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Described as "a golden age of pathogens", the long fifteenth century was notable for a series of international, national and regional epidemics that had a profound effect upon the fabric of society. The impact of pestilence upon the literary, religious, social and political life of men, women and children throughout Europe and beyond continues to excite lively debate among historians, as the ten papers presented in this volume confirm. They deal with the response of urban communities in England, France and Italy to matters of public health, governance and welfare, as well as addressing the reactions of the medical profession to successive outbreaks of disease, and of individuals to the omnipresence of Death, while two, very different, essays examine the important, if sometimes controversial, contribution now being made by microbiologists to our understanding of the Black Death.
