9780859914215: Shifts and Transpositions in Medieval Narrative: A Festschrift for Dr Elspeth Kennedy

The essays in this collection celebrate the research and teaching career of Dr ELSPETH KENNEDY (St Hilda's College, Oxford), distinguished Arthurian and medievalist. Papers focus on the processes of innovation and transformation and the relationship between tradition and originality in medieval literature. They consider shifts from one genre to another and their implications for audience expectations; transpositions of a theme or story within or between narratives; and the process of rewriting a work in the same language. A variety of different approaches are used, reflecting the latest research in, among others, gender studies, generic intertextuality, translation theory, psychoanalysis, and anthropology. Several literary genres are treated, and works in different languages (Latin, Old and Middle French, Middle High German, Old and Middle English) are examined.Contributors:KAREN PRATT,EMMANULE BAUMGARTNER,DONALD MADDOX, SARA STURM-MADDOX, SARA KAY, ROGER PENSOM, MAUREEN BOULTON, JANICE M.
