Medieval England : an encyclopedia by Paul E Szarmach( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2017 in English and held by 1,057 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Medieval England is a topic that has perennial fascination: King Arthur, Robin Hood, chivalry, and Beowulf seem to have obtained a permanent place in high-school reading lists and the popular imagination. Spanning the 5th through the 15th century, this encyclopedia covers broad topics such as music, women, and language, as well as specific topics such as people, famous buildings, printing, monastic orders, prostitution, and stained glass. There are helpful charts of the kings and queens of England, archbishops of Canterbury and York, and the popes. Black-and-white illustrations abound, and each entry contains a bibliography for further research."--"Outstanding Reference Sources : the 1999 Selection of New Titles", American Libraries, May 1999. Comp. by the Reference Sources Committee, RUSA, ALA."
Kindly similitude : marriage and family in Piers Plowman by M. Teresa Tavormina( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings together a series of key essays by Larry D Benson, well-known for his work in editing the Riverside Chaucer. Of the studies selected, the opening three deal with Old English, recasting the possibilities for the critical study of Beowulf, above all the relation between oral and written literary production. The following ten essays turn to Middle English literature, with the focus first on Chaucer, and the evolution of his works and his language, then on the social and cultural context of medieval chivalric texts. Throughout, Professor Benson approaches his subjects with a skeptical intent, even a seeming contrariness in seeking to contradict received views, but in fact with the purpose of questioning in order to understand more deeply. Scattered in their original publications, and with one hitherto unpublished, together these studies present a powerful argument for this questioning approach to fundamental issues and constitute a major contribution to the study of the literary and cultural history of the medieval world. -- Amazon.com

Medieval literature and society( Recording )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On program #230. Wandering in the English countryside, a poet stops to rest, falls asleep, and dreams. His vision fills itself with fantastic images of right and wrong, reason and conscience, truth and fraud, virtue, life and death. While such dream/visions are as old as literature itself, "Piers plowman" provides modern readers with a supreme example of moral allegory that investigates individual and social behavior. Concludes with a commentary by Robert Gingher on the stone megaliths of Stonehenge
