From Medievalism to Early-Modernism: Adapting the English Past is a collection of essays that both analyses the historical and cultural medieval and early modern past, and engages with the medievalism and early-modernism-a new term introduced in this collection-present in contemporary popular culture. By focusing on often overlooked uses of the past in contemporary culture-such as the allusions to John Webster's The Duchess of Malfi (1623) in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter books, and the impact of intertextual references and internet fandom on the BBC's The Hollow Crown: The Wars of the Roses-the contributors illustrate how cinematic, televisual, artistic, and literary depictions of the historical and cultural past not only re-purpose the past in varying ways, but also build on a history of adaptations that audiences have come to know and expect. From Medievalism to Early-Modernism: Adapting the English Past analyses the way that the medieval and early modern periods are used in modern adaptations, and how these adaptations both reflect contemporary concerns, and engage with a history of intertextuality and intervisuality.
