Derek Brewer (1923-2008) was one of the most influential medievalists of the twentieth century, first through his own publications and teaching, and later as a pioneer in academic publishing. Essays in this collection take their starting point from his ideas and interests, before offering their own fresh thinking in those key areas of medieval studies in which he pioneered innovations which remain central, from Chaucer's knight and knightly virtues to the wholeness of Malory's 'Morte Darthur'
