Fall 2013 not offered
Romance was one of the most popular genres of literature in the Middle Ages. In this course we will begin with texts that date from the romance's origins in 12th-century France and continue with the form's development up to the well-known Middle English texts of the 14th century, including SIR GAWAIN AND THE GREEN KNIGHT. Some of the topics we will consider are Romance's engagement with the religious and ethnic conflicts of the Crusades, theories of good and bad governance, Christian mysticism and the Holy Grail, and, of course, the concept of so-called "courtly love" and medieval sexualities.
