Representations of feeling in medieval literature are varied and complex . This new collection of essays demonstrates that the history of emotions and affect theory are similarly insufficient for investigating the intersection of body and mind that late Middle English literatures evoke. From the medieval to the early modern period, this question is intriguingly explored in the expansive literary genre of romance.

Hitherto scholarly interest in gender relations in such literature has largely focused on French romance or on literature in English from a later period. By turning the focus on the rich material to be garnered from Germany - the romances Erec, Tristan and Parzival - Professor Green shows how some vernacular writers devised methods to debate and challenge the undoubted antifeminism of the day by presenting a Utopia. odel, supported by a revision of views by the Church, to contrast with contemporary practice.

There has never been a full study in any language of the contribution to medieval fiction of entertainment by writers in Greek. This book fills that gap and provides basic information for the non-specialist about Greek fiction during the period 1071-1453, as well as proposing new solutions to problems that have vexed previous generations of scholars. The most important advances made by the book are the application for the first time of sophisticated methods of literary analysis to the material, and the bridging of the artificial gap that in the past has separated 'Byzantine' literature, in a form of ancient Greek, from 'Modern Greek' writing, in the vernacular. As a result, it is argued that the long tradition of romance writing in Greek is both much more homogeneous, and of far greater literary sophistication, than has previously been realised. Throughout, consideration is given to relations and interconnections with similar literature in western Europe. There is a substantial, up-to-date bibliography.
