Instructor: Prof. A. Walton
Office Location: Jackman Humanities Building, Room 733
Brief Description of Course:
In this course, we will explore a wide variety of medieval genres, including lyrics, riddles, histories, epics, romances, plays, letters, and comic poems. Although we will focus primarily on the literature of medieval England, we will read this literature in light of England’s relationships—both real and imagined—to other nations and parts of the world.
