Proteus: Studies in English Literature
His special subjects are already to the fore: the medieval 'mindset', Chaucer, Malory, and the art of story above all. But his wide view also homes in on Shakespeare; on Wordsworth and the Romantics; and on E. M. Forster and modern novelists. Each of these topics Derek Brewer subtly contextualises with observations that are at once illuminating and informed by common sense. The whole is prefaced by a consideration of the important issues and preoccupations that underpin English literature, and how attitudes towards them evolved: morality, a sense of time, love, class and religion.
Professor Derek Brewer [1923-2008], medievalist and scholar, was Master of Emmanuel College, Cambridge, from 1977-90.
