Overview

Strohen's collection of 13 papers, most published here for the first time, aims to reunite literary theory with the text and proposes a form of 'practical theory' which places the text at the centre of analysis and allows the text a relationship with the outside world. From this refreshing perspective and in well-written and often light-hearted prose, Stohn reassesses works of dissent, notably by Lollards, Chaucerian narrative, chronicles, Shakespearean characterisation and the relationship between medieval studies and psychoanalysis.
