Malory and Christianity

Essays on Sir Thomas Malory's Morte Darthur

editor

As Hanks and Jesmok note in their introduction, “pursuing opponents and pursuing love move the Morte’s narrative, but the work’s richness comes from its romance and tragic elements: the human quest for maturity and fulfillment and those uncontrollable forces that undermine the quest and destroy the dream. Malory’s use of myth and magic to explore these themes has received extensive scholarly attention, but his views on and thematic use of Christianity have long needed a closer look.” The collection features essays by the editors and by Corey Olsen, Sue Ellen Holbrook, Karen Cherewatuk, Dorsey Armstrong, Fiona Tolhurst, K. S. Whetter, and Felicia Nimue Ackerman.

Renaissance Retrospections

Tudor Views of the Middle Ages

editor

The Middle Ages provided an important, if complex, set of literary and historiographic models for early modern authors, although the early modern authors responded to the alien political, religious, and cultural landscape of medieval England through their more present ideological concerns. From Shakespeare’s manipulation of his medieval source material to Protestant responses to medieval Catholicism, this collection of essays explores the ways that early modern English writers responded to the medieval English literary and historical record, dealing with topics such as historiographic bias, print history, intertextuality, and cultural history. The volume is an important participant in the ongoing reshaping of professional ideas about periodization and cultural identity.
