Writing Regional Identities in Medieval England - From the Gesta Herwardi to Richard Coer de Lyon (Hardback)Emily Dolmans (author)
- Coming soon
Using romances and histories from England's multilingual literary milieu, including the Gesta Herewardi, Fouke le Fitz Waryn, and Richard Coer de Lyon, this study examines some of England's contact zones and how they influence understandings of English identities during the twelfth to fourteenth centuries. Moving from local identity in Ely, to the transcultural regions of Lincolnshire and the Welsh Marches, and finally investigating England as a border region from a global perspective, this book examines the diversity of Englishness, the effects of cultural contact on identity, and how English writers imagined their place in the world.
EMILY DOLMANS is a lecturer in Medieval Literature at the University of East Anglia
