Overview

This volume is devoted to medievalism in England, including: The Antiquarian Impulse in England, 1500-1730, The Two Noble Kinsmen and the Problem of Chivalry, From Medievalism to Historicism, Catholic History and the Middle Ages, Rossetti's Quest for God's Graal.
Medievalism - the whole spectrum of post-medieval response to the middle ages - is now accepted as a vital key to the understanding of Western culture and society from 1500 to the present, pervading every aspect of our time, from the popularto the scholarly and artistic. Studies in Medievalism, published annually, is the one series to provide a regular forum for discussion of issues related to medievalism. This volume is devoted to medievalism in England, appropriately, since England has always played a central part in the development of medievalism. Contributors from England, Germany, Japan, Canada and the United States deal with topics ranging from 16th-century antiquarianism to 20th-century detective fiction.
