  • A Note on the Old Norse-Icelandic Verb at dreyma “to dream”

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In Old Norse-Icelandic writing, excepting a few outlier cases, the verb at dreyma, “to dream” is accompanied by an accusative noun or pronoun (for example, the first person singular accusative pronoun mik, “me”) and sometimes an accusative object (for example, the singular accusative noun draum, “dream”).1 This morphological feature of the language has led some to claim that the absence of a nominative subject in references to the act of dreaming reflects a certain cultural attitude toward dreams in medieval Norse society. Ronald Grambo, for example, has asserted that the “special structure of the clauses reveals that people in ancient times in the Norse area conceived the dream as a supernatural message, e. g. ...

  • Dreamworlds, Storyworlds: Narrative Proliferation and the Case of
           Stjörnu-Odda draumr

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: All texts, all narratives project storyworlds, and the medieval Icelandic sagas and þættir are no exception to this rule. This capacity of especially the Íslendingasögur—their worldbuilding—has often been invoked in scholarship, and references to a “world of the sagas” or “saga world” abound. Thus, we learn that this world is “overwhelmingly male dominated,” defined by “feuding and vengeance,” and “stratified by class, age, economic position, and gender”: in short, a world “in which individuals confront one another.”1 Moreover, this world has been tied to the idea of the immanent whole,2 with Emily Lethbridge writing that the Íslendingasögur are conceptualized not “as discrete entities but rather as flexible and ...

  • The Word-Foot Theory of Old English Meter, Version II

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: To refine the word-foot theory, I have worked to incorporate statistical studies of related meters and recent developments in linguistics. The theory now provides explanations for how the meter arose, how it developed within Old Norse, Old English, Old Saxon, and Old High German, and how it evolved into the Middle English meter of poems like Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.1 Here I return to the Old English (OE) period, this time with different emphases. Rather than showing how the theory explains observations in previous research, I present an updated theory on its own, with more attention to problems in alternative approaches. Rather than reviewing all available evidence for the theory, I focus on the clearest ... Read More

  • Dream, Bliss, and the Shaping of Emotional Meaning in Beowulf

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Antonette diPaolo Healey reminds us that “we determine the meaning of a word primarily through analysis of its context.”1 It follows that the use of a word in different contexts may imply for that single term a range of possible denotations. In the partially complete Dictionary of Old English,2 sense subdivisions within word entries reveal the frequency and breadth of this polysemy: a word will often carry a long list of possible denotations, arising from differences in the grammatical or semantic environment in which the word is deployed across the surviving corpus. Thus a term may carry a certain meaning only with the dative, or only in military sense—in the latter case, it falls to the audience to recognize the ... Read More

  • Marian Literary Culture: Lydgate, his Heirs, and the End of Tragedy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Posterity has not always looked kindly on Mary I, England’s first queen, her reign once judged to have been as sterile as her body.1 It is a crass image, but if Mary was anything other than just a religious bigot, then she has been thought a pathetic bigot, a tragic figure to be pitied. Abandoned by her father, rejected by her husband, her womb as barren as her coffers and her nation’s fields, Mary’s achievements were always going to be few and her disasters many.2 In the words of A. G. Dickens, the reign must “be judged not merely a huge failure, but one likely to have become more monumental with every succeeding year.”3Some four centuries earlier than Dickens, much the same was said by the martyrologist John Foxe ...

  • The Oxford Guide to Middle High German by Howard Jones and Martin H. Jones
           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: It is hard to believe that this monumental work has been written by a team of two scholars. A project of such scope might have occupied a whole department for years. The first 225 pages deal with a few general concepts, phonetics, grammar (morphology and syntax), and lexis. The exposition is of necessity condensed (twelve pages on nouns, thirty-six pages on verbs, and so forth). Everything is mentioned, but from the nature of the case, nothing could be explored in depth.The rubrics following “Lexis” are “Versification,” “Historical, Cultural, and Literary Background,” and “Selection of Annotated Texts.” The chapter on the background takes over sixty pages, and text analysis runs from pp. 317–592. The volume ends ... Read More

  • Neomedievalism, Popular Culture, and the Academy: From Tolkien to Game of
           Thrones by Kellyann Fitzpatrick (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This book offers more than the subtitle promises; from some viewpoints there is only a short distance between The Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones. Kellyann Fitzpatrick’s investigation of neomedievalism is both deeper and more expansive than the title suggests. It ranges temporally from the nineteenth century to the present, and across novels, art, film and television, and card and video games, as well as academic neomedievalisms. The range of material Fitzpatrick examines reflects the pervasiveness of recreations of the Middle Ages in modern Western popular culture. The book is arranged by “theme and medium” (p. xxi) rather than in chronological order and divided into three sections: “Producing ... Read More

  • Rebel Angels: Space and Sovereignty in Anglo-Saxon England by Jill
           Fitzgerald (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The story of the rebellion and fall of the angels appears many times across the vernacular and Latin writings of early medieval England, providing a ready narrative for framing issues of obedience and disobedience, punishment and reward. In Rebel Angels, Jill Fitzgerald surveys this enduring tradition in order “to explore how the story of the angelic rebellion can illuminate other areas of the Anglo-Saxon imagination and social word: namely, perceptions of territory, dissent, power, and popular belief” (p. 2). Reminiscent in many ways of Nicholas Howe’s work on the migration myth, Fitzgerald provides an intellectual history of the fall of the angels as an ideological narrative that proved remarkably adaptable for ...

  • A Landscape of Words: Ireland, Britain and the Poetics of Space,
           700–1250 by Amy C. Mulligan (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The importance of place—spatial, geographical, topographical—in Irish literature has long been recognized, but as Amy Mulligan notes in this insightful and compelling study, perhaps too much so as a feature rather than a character. Engaging with Gaston Bachelard’s poetics of space and heeding his urging that “we must listen to poets” (The Poetics of Space, cited in Mulligan, p. 12), Mulligan produces a sustained reflection on spatial elements in medieval Irish literature spanning six hundred years. This project begins with an introduction defining an Irish poetics of space as “encompass[ing] a great many modes, devices, characteristics and styles . . . unified in the production of landscapes of words, places that ...

  • God’s Patients: Chaucer, Agency, and the Nature of Laws by John
           Bugbee (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: John Bugbee’s ambitious monograph sets out to restore a more authentic reading to a specific set of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. The study works toward this goal by recovering a “lost ideal,” a set of assumptions regarding individual agency and philosophical realism that Bugbee sees shaping Chaucer’s tales “at a deep level” (pp. 5, 11). For the most widespread and accessible articulation of these theological commonplaces, Bugbee turns to Bernard of Clairvaux to explicate two concepts: cooperative action and the “gentle” application of the law. This approach first examines the cooperation between the human subject and God in bringing about individual salvation. That is, human salvation (or any other human activity) ... Read More

  • Author, Scribe, and Book in Late Medieval English Literature by Rory G.
           Critten (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This study joins a substantial body of scholarship that considers writings of different periods and genres in the context of the material witnesses that preserve them and the networks of production, transmission, and reception that have influenced their makeup and contents. At its best, the integration of close reading, book history, and other forms of historical inquiry permits a fuller understanding of individual works and broader trends in literary history than any of these approaches might yield on its own. Nevertheless, maintaining the right balance between them is a precarious business. Not only does each have a different purview and follow different protocols, but also in cases where the evidence specific to ... Read More

  • Medieval Narratives of Alexander the Great: Transnational Texts in England
           and France by Venetia Bridges (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: It was not that long ago that anyone curious about the reception of Alexander the Great in the Middle Ages picked up one of two surveys: George Cary’s The Medieval Alexander (1956) for a broad account of the crafting of the legend from late antiquity to the High Middle Ages, or Paul Meyer’s Alexander le Grand dans la littérature française du moyen âge (1886) for a more specialized study of the romance Alexander in France. These days one can read studies dissecting the medieval Alexander from a host of perspectives: linguistic, geographical, intellectual, historical, codicological, literary. All of this activity in the last twenty-five years or so has steadily established this legend as a near subdiscipline ... Read More

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In her second book, Staging Contemplation: Participatory Theology in Middle English Prose, Verse, and Drama, Eleanor Johnson once again demonstrates the power of new formalism as an illuminating approach to Middle English literature. This ambitious study reads across genres and critical traditions to locate a distinct theological impetus within late medieval English literature, from the devotional prose texts The Cloud of Unknowing and A Revelation of Love to the visionary verse Piers Plowman and drama including the N-Town Mary plays, Wisdom, and Mankind. Arguing for these works as a coherent body of “contemplative literature” that both enables and reveals audience participation, Johnson makes a case for an ... Read More

  • The Poet and the Antiquaries: Chaucerian Scholarship and the Rise of
           Literary History, 1532–1635 by Megan L. Cook (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Megan Cook’s The Poet and the Antiquaries fills a gap among other scholarship on Chaucer’s postmedieval readers and printers. While scholars such as Alexandra Gillespie, Stephanie Trigg, Seth Lerer, and Paul Ruggiers have studied various aspects of Chaucer’s reception in the transition period from manuscript to print, Cook’s focus is on the ways the antiquarian interests of Chaucer’s 16th- and early 17th-century readers and transmitters influenced readings and presentations of Chaucer’s works. She argues that Chaucer was important to these individuals not primarily because of his literary qualities but because of his antiquity and nationality. In roughly chronological order, Cook traces specific antiquarians ... Read More

           Ann Marie Rasmussen (review)

      Abstract: This volume is a timely, important continuation and development of the scholarly conversation about medieval masculinities. Although this volume grew out of a series of conferences, classes, and scholarly exchanges, it is more than a coterie project; in fact, as the editor Ann Marie Rasmussen acknowledges, the volume is a testament to the kind of wide-ranging humanities scholarship made possible by a program like Duke University’s “Humanities Writ Large,” which provided the support for the scholarly community from which this volume arose. This is because, in expanding how we think about medieval masculinities beyond the simple doings of men, essays in this volume chart several new paths that will be indispensable ... Read More

  • Chaucer and Religious Controversies in the Medieval and Early Modern Eras
           by Nancy Bradley Warren (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: It is something of a commonplace that Early Modern reformers considered Geoffrey Chaucer to have proto-Protestant proclivities. In her new book, however, Nancy Bradley Warren tells a rather more complex and interesting story about the understanding and appropriation of Chaucer in the religious controversies in the three centuries after the poet’s death. From the readers of Chaucer in fifteenth-century nunneries to references to Chaucer in texts circulating in colonial America, Warren here shows that Chaucer and his characters were ripe for religious appropriation. Warren is an expert guide to this history. She has long been a student of the reception of medieval religious texts in the postmedieval world, charting ... Read More
