Description

At the level of plot, the romance epic includes a plethora of characters in disguise and the use of deceits to move the narratives forward, providing both intrigue and humor. But also, more subtly, these texts bear witness to sources, influences, and outside motives hidden beneath the more conspicuous desire to entertain through a traditional format. This session invites papers that examine how texts, authors, and audience negotiated the many levels of things hidden in the romance epic.
