Summary
Materiality and the material are important in medieval romance. The essays here focus both on the physical forms of romance texts (manuscripts, verse form, illustrations and visual portryals), and on how romances themselves inhabit and reflect on the material culture of the Middle Ages. Specific themes discussed include social, historical, and physical space; bodies and gender politics; and romance illustrations in manuscripts, and in other media. Nicholas Perkins is University Lecturer and Tutor in medieval English, University of Oxford. Contributors: Siobhain Bly Calkin, Nancy Mason Bradbury, Aisling Byrne, Anna Caughey, Neil Cartlidge, Mark Cruse, Morgan Dickson, Rosalind Field, Elliott Kendall, Megan Leitch, Henrike Manuwald, Ad Putter, Raluca Radulescu, Robert Rouse,
