Publisher's Summary:
This is the second of a three-volume set on medieval scholarship that presents original biographical essays on the scholars whose work has shaped medieval studies for the past 400 years. Volume Two covers the lives of 35 eminent individuals - from Laurence Nowell (1530-1570) to Rosemary Woolf (1925-1978) - whose subjects were the languages and literatures of Europe between 500 and 1500. Each of the scholars pioneered or revolutionized traditional views in fields such as archival studies, folklore and dialectology, and the selections discuss such topics as the chansons de geste, Chaucer, Dante, troubadour lyrics, Arthurian romance and Celtic literature. Though from a variety of fields, each work contributes to our understanding of our cultural and aesthetic heritage.
