Description

In recent years Middle English studies has begun to engage with its subject's prehistory, manifest both in the renewed interest in "early Middle English" texts and also in the many studies of late-medieval romances, saints' lives and chronicles documenting the Anglo-Saxon period. These studies have challenged not only the traditional periodization of English medieval studies, but also certain fundamental presumptions about medieval understandings of history, nation and geography. In this panel we will integrate these on-going conversations into the criticism of Chaucer, especially the representation of a simultaneously familiar and strange English history in The Man of Law's Tale.
