The essays in this volume reflect the range and diversity of approach and of critical stance which have characterized romance studies in recent years. Amongst the areas of interest addressed are those of generic definition; the role of romance in relation to emergent ideas of nationalism; and the complex associations between gender and genre, and between historical events and their expression in literature. Other issues which are explored are the central ones of the transmission and reception of texts; the nature of their audiences; and the implications of critical theory for the reading of medieval romance.

A welcome addition to romance studies. STUDIES IN THE AGE OF CHAUCER

Well shows the liveliness of scholarship in this area. MEDIUM AEVUM

An admirable volume. ANGLIA
