Description

This session moves beyond the critical discussion of ludic elements in Sir Gawain and the Green Knight to take a more broad approach to play and performance in the poems of Cotton Nero A.x and St. Erkenwald. This wider scope allows for investigations of the poet’s interest in word games, competing voices and discourses, and the role of courtly entertainments in and for the poems.
