The essays in this volume celebrate the career of the distinguished medievalist, Ronald Waldron. Fittingly, they focus on the Middle English alliterative tradition, but do not exclude material in other areas. Acting as a linking theme is a concern with the relationship of texts to their contexts, whether historical, philosophical, linguistic, or codicological. Topics discussed include feasting in Middle English alliterative poetry; setting and context in the works of the Gawain-poet; Henryson's Testament of Cresseid; Layamon; and Middle English verse in Chronicles. Contributors: MALCOLM ANDREW, ROSAMUND ALLEN, RALPH HANNA, SUSAN POWELL, JANE ROBERTS, JEREMY SMITH, DEREK PEARSALL, N.F. BLAKE, JULIA BOFFEY, A.S.G. EDWARDS, JANET COWEN, ROGER DAHOOD, ELTON D. HIGGS, GEORGE KANE.
