Allegory and the Poetic Self: First-Person Narration in Late Medieval Literature
Edited by R. Barton Palmer, Katharina Philipowski, and Julia Rüthemann

“A stunning collection of essays on first-person allegorical narratives of the late Middle Ages that brings together an impressive group of scholars from different linguistic traditions.”—Katherine A. Brown, author of Boccaccio’s Fabliaux: Medieval Short Stories and the Function of Reversal

Gender and Voice in Medieval French Literature and Song
Edited by Rachel May Golden and Katherine Kong

“The collected essays . . . take voice as the starting point for a series of lively interrogations of the construction of gender in medieval culture. . . . This volume seamlessly draws connections between literature and song and provides a wonderful example of how new perspectives on medieval material . . . can be found with the application of contemporary critical tools.”—Early Music America

An Introduction to the Sagas of Icelanders
Carl Phelpstead

“An excellent introduction to all aspects of reading the sagas, combining practical guidance to approaching the texts with clear delineation of the genre and comprehensive analysis of the critical literature.”—Alison Finlay, co-translator of The Saga of the Jómsvikings: A Translation with Full Introduction

An Old French Trilogy: Texts from the William of Orange Cycle
Translated by Catherine M. Jones, William W. Kibler, and Logan E. Whalen

“A new translation into modern English of an important and influential set of Old French epic poems. Humorous and human, complete with love interest and combat, trickery and travel, these stories follow the fictional history of Charlemagne’s family in what is now Western Europe.”—Leslie Zarker Morgan, coeditor of Approaches to Teaching the “Song of Roland”  

Shaping Identity in Medieval French Literature: The Other Within
Edited by Adrian P. Tudor and Kristin L. Burr

“Maps out new territory that offers an in-depth investigation of a crucial aspect of medieval literature. The notion of ‘the other within’ promises (and delivers) insight into what differentiates as well as brings together past and present concerns.”—Matilda Tomaryn Bruckner, author of Chrétien Continued: A Study of the “Conte du Graal” and Its Verse Continuations

New Perspectives on Medieval Literature: Authors and Traditions
Edited by Tison Pugh, University of Central Florida, and R. Barton Palmer

New Perspectives on Medieval Literature offers compact, comprehensive, and up-to-date studies of important medieval authors and traditions written by leading scholars. These volumes will appeal to undergraduate and graduate students, academics, and general readers interested in the vibrant world of medieval literature. Our philosophy in New Perspectives on Medieval Literature is that good scholarship should excite both interest in and accessibility to a field of study, and this principle of combining the scholarship of teaching with student learning informs our editorial decisions. The first books in the series will address Geoffrey Chaucer, Christine de Pizan, and the Arthurian tradition; subsequent texts will address such topics as Marie de France, Chrétien de Troyes, the Pearl-Poet, troubadourism, and saints’ lives, among many others.
