Abstract

A recently discovered fragment of the Middle English Prose Brut, from the Special Collections department of Queen’s University, Belfast, illuminates the diverse production methods used in the Brut corpus. As part of this process, the author investigates the origins of the unique textual interpolation contained in the Belfast Brut fragment. Through comparison with the Dartmouth Brut, the author suggests some of the different approaches Brut producers took when tasked with “making history.”
