CTextual subjectivity : the encoding of subjectivity in medieval narratives and lyricsHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etc"This book investigates how subjectivity is encoded in the texts of a wide variety of medieval narratives and lyrics - not how they express the subjectivity of individuals, but how subjectivity, escaping the bounds of individuality, is incorporated in the linguistic fabric of their texts. Most of the poems discussed are in English, and the book includes analyses of Chaucer's Troilus and Criseyde, Man of Law's tale, and Complaint Unto Pity, the works of the Pearl poet, Havelok the Dane, the lyric sequence attributed to Charles of Orleans (the earliest such sequence in English), and many anonymous poems by the troubadour Bernart de Ventadorn. For the first time, it brings to bear on medieval narratives and lyrics a body of theory which denies the supposed necessity for literary texts to have narrators or 'speakers', and in doing so reveals the implausibilities into which a dogmatic assumption of this necessity has led much of the last century's criticism."--Jacket+-+197236346550734ocn000888831book19660.53Chaucer, GeoffreyThe franklin's prologue and tale, from the Canterbury talesPoetry+-+894119670532448521ocn000888295book19660.59Chaucer, GeoffreyThe Knight's tale, from the Canterbury talesPoetry+-+188195670532448034ocn000888329book19650.63Chaucer, GeoffreyThe pardoner's prologue & tale, from the Canterbury talesCriticism, interpretation, etcPoetry+-+836319670545713ocn025409286book19930.77Spearing, A.

CMedieval autographies : the "I" of the textCriticism, interpretation, etc"In Medieval Autographies, A.C. Spearing develops a new engagement of narrative theory with medieval English first-person writing, focusing on the roles and functions of the "I" as a shifting textual phenomenon, not to be defined either as autobiographical or as the label of a fictional speaker or narrator. Spearing identifies and explores a previously unrecognized category of medieval English poetry, calling it "autography." He describes this form as emerging in the mid-fourteenth century and consisting of extended nonlyrical writings in the first person, embracing prologues, authorial interventions in and commentaries on third-person narratives, and descendants of the dit, a genre of French medieval poetry. He argues that autography arose as a means of liberation from the requirement to tell stories with preordained conclusions and as a way of achieving a closer relation to lived experience, with all its unpredictability and inconsistencies. Autographies, he claims, are marked by a cluster of characteristics including a correspondence to the texture of life as it is experienced, a montage-like unpredictability of structure, and a concern with writing and textuality. Beginning with what may be the earliest extended first-person narrative in Middle English, Winner and Waster, the book examines instances of the dit as discussed by French scholars, analyzes Chaucer's Wife of Bath's Prologue as a textual performance, and devotes separate chapters to detailed readings of Hoccleve's Regement of Princes prologue, his Complaint and Dialogue, and the witty first-person elements in Osbern Bokenham's legends of saints. An afterword suggests possible further applications of the concept of autography, including discussion of the intermittent autographic commentaries on the narrative in Troilus and Criseyde and Capgrave's Life of Saint Katherine."--Publisher's description3608ocn043334212book19980.53JulianRevelations of divine love (short text and long text)HistorySourcesPrayersManuscriptsDevotional literature+-+282199596527810ocn002913030book19760.63Spearing, A.
