The York Notes Companion to Medieval Literature spans five centuries of literature written after the Norman Conquest, a time in which enormous social, political and linguistic change transformed life in Britain. Introducing medieval genres such as Arthurian romance, lyrics, dream narratives and mystery plays in their social and historical contexts, the Companion explores examples from each genre in detailed commentaries, and guides students through key literary theories and debates. Connecting texts with their historical and scholarly contexts, this is essential reading for any student of medieval literature.

About the author: Carole Maddern is a Lecturer at Goldsmiths, University of London, where she is Convenor of Old English and Deputy Chair of the External Degree English Programme.
