Fifteenth-Century Studies Vol. 31

Edited by Edelgard E. DuBruck, Barbara I. Gusick

Annual volume of essays, focusing on the literary genres of drama, poetry, prose, and romance.
Fifteenth-Century Studies offers essays on diverse aspects of the period, including liberal and fine arts, historiography, medicine, and religion. The standard survey of drama research leads off the present volume. Ten essays follow, involving France, Spain, Germany, England, and Finland. Essays deal with love poetry, laughter and manhood in Jehan de Saintré, a new dating of Sir Gawein and the Green Knight, German eschatological theater, portrayals of Christ's healing of the lame man on the York stage, translation during the Middle Spanish period, the end of the persecution of witches, and late medieval executioners. Book reviews and an index of volumes 21 through 30 conclude the volume.
