Chaucer and the Challenges of Medievalism: Studies in Honor of H.A. Kelly

Front Cover
P. Lang, 2003 - 403 pages
Chaucer and the Challenges of Medievalism honors the extraordinary academic career of H. A. Kelly, whose scholarship covers a wide variety of topics, including medieval and Renaissance literature and history, ecclesiastical history and theology, and philology. In recognition of his broad historical sweep, authors addressed in this volume range from Aristotle to Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, though, in the interest of cohesion, the contributions focus primarily on English medieval literature and philology, and on closely related European and historical fields. Theoretically and methodologically, the essays fulfill the dual task of taking stock and taking on the challenges now facing medievalism. The reader will encounter a broad variety of - texts here, as well as fresh perspectives on issues of current interest in medieval studies."
