Sir Gawain and Company

Code: 198 Year 2023-2024
This course will concentrate on the poetry of the Alliterative Tradition, roughly contemporary with, but very different from Chaucer’s work. We shall focus on Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, but also look at other Middle English texts. Copies of the texts will be provided for a small charge.
