Arthurian studies in honour of P.J.C. Field by Bonnie Wheeler( )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Field, Professor of English at the University of Wales, Bangor, is a distinguished Arthurian scholar (and vice-president of the International Arthurian Society) whose work has focused particularly on Malory's 'Morte Darthur'. This special interest is reflected by the contributors to this volume, but a wide variety of other Arthurian and associated material is also covered in the twenty-seven studies. The chapters range over the whole field of Arthurian vernacular texts and include new studies of early French and German texts as well as an analysis of the impact of Arthurian materials on Galician-Portuguese poetry. Many provide new insights into Malory's text and sources, and these culminate in reflections on Malory's impact on one later American reader, Mark Twain. Collectively the chapters on Malory substantiate a the claim that Malory is a keen and critical reader of his source texts, and that he is a powerful stylist.

Listening to Heloise : the voice of a twelfth-century woman( Book )

13 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Heloise, the twelfth-century French abbess and reformer, emerges from this book as one of history's most extraordinary women; a thinker-writer of profound insight and skill. Her supple and learned mind attracted the most radical philosopher of her time, Peter Abelard. He became her teacher, lover, husband, and finally monastic ally. That relationship has made her fame until now. But Heloise is far more important in her own right. Seventeen experts of international standing collaborate here to reveal and analyze how Heloise's daring achievements shaped normative issues of theology, rhetoric, rational argument, gender and emotional authenticity."--Jacket
Joan of Arc and spirituality( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Joan of Arc (1412-1431) is a challenging figure in the history of spirituality. This collection explores multiple facets of Joan's life of prayer, action, and suffering. Two-thirds of the essays focus on the Maid in her own time, providing new insights into how Joan and others understood her spirituality. The later chapters study Joan's formative influence upon modern women. Taken together, these essays offer new perspectives on the heroism of Joan's original way of sanctity."--Jacket
The letters of Heloise and Abelard : a translation of their collected correspondence and related writings by Peter Abelard( Book )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"She began their passionate and complex correspondence by calling him " ... her heart's love ..." while he referred to her as " ... the singular joy and only solace of a weary mind." The letters of Heloise and Abelard will remain one of the great, romantic and intellectual documents of human civilization while they, themselves, are probably second only to Romeo and Juliet in the fame accrued by tragic lovers. Living in the abbey of the Paraclete in the12th century, the two poured each others hearts and minds out to each other in a series of letters. Here for the first time in McLaughlin's edition is the complete correspondence with commentary. This book will be a necessity for anyone interested in the medieval period and for those interested in these two touchingly unforgettable figures from the distant past. This book is a companion volume to McLaughlin's study of Heloise, Heloise and the Paraclete."--Jacket
The Malory debate : essays on the texts of Le morte Darthur( Book )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For the past fifty years, debates about the authority and authenticity of editions of Malory have sparked much controversy: should Caxton be followed, the Winchester version, or a mixture of both? The papers in this volume represent the most important contributions to the dialogue; previously published articles have been updated where relevant and new issues are presented in several original essays, while the introductions place the argument in its theoretical and historical contexts."--Jacket
