Pressestimmen'Unlike many previous literary histories, this will be read ... David Wallace's history is the work of many gifted contributors, a consummate editor, and a publishing house investing its resources as only a great press can.' James Simpson ' ... many of the contributors, have taken their opportunity to reorganise areas of the literacy of the British Isles with great originality and learning ... a striking modernist project'. Times Literary Supplement 'The Cambridge History of Medieval English Literature provides a formidable set of tools for the critic of medieval literature ... The unobtrusive editorial presence that allows chapters with widely diverging approaches is a useful and mature reflection of the accommodation of plurality required for an intelligent reading of medieval literature ... This is a scholarly and erudite publication.' The Times 'Not only a veritably new history of medieval English literature but also an exemplary instance of literary history in the age of post-modernity.' Yasunari Takada, The University of Tokyo, Komaba 'The Cambridge History of Medieval English Literature is an excellent and long overdue reassessment, which completes a paradigm shift in the study of English medieval literature. It synthesises and responds to developments in the field over the last twenty years, and forges them into a coherent whole. A pioneering work in the field of medieval studies, it is also a fascinating and highly rewarding reading experience, that should be shared by everyone in the discipline.'
