  • Description
  • Contents
First comprehensive collection to be devoted to Sir Bevis, the most popular Middle English romance.

Sir Bevis of Hampton is one of the most widespread and important Middle English romances. This book - the first ever full-length study to be devoted to it - considers it in its historical and literary contexts, and its Anglo-Norman, Welsh, Irish and Icelandic versions. It also offers detailed textual analyses, and discusses particular aspects of the story, its "afterlife" and its influence during the early modern period.
