Description

Writers of Middle English poetry wrote in a way that engaged with the political issues of their day. These writers often chose one side of a political struggle to champion in their poetry, and they frequently wrote in an attempt to guide the king or other nobles onto the proper political course. We are seeking papers which explore this intersection between writers of Middle English poetry and the politics of their day.
