Description

Hailing from, and possibly writing in, the Northwest Midlands, the poet of the Cotton Nero A.x poems was acutely aware of the tensions between the centre and periphery. Like Gawain venturing forth from the warmth of Arthur’s court to wander the Welsh marches, this session explores the role and function of the outside, the edge, and the in-between in the works of the Gawain-poet.
