Medieval and Early Modern Authorship: Published Today

October 6, 2011

Reports of his death having been greatly exaggerated, the author has made a spectacular return in English studies. This is the first book devoted to medieval and early modern authorship, exploring continuities, discontinuities, and innovations in the two periods which literary histories and institutional practices too often keep apart. Canonical authors receive sustained attention (notably Chaucer, Gower, Shakespeare, Jonson, Milton, and Marvell), and so do key issues in the current scholarly debate, such as authorial self-fashioning, the fictionalisation of authorship, the posthumous construction of authorship, and the nexus of authorship and authority. Other important topics whose relation to authorship are explored include adaptation, paratext, portraiture, historiography, hagiography, theology, and the sublime.

Medieval and Early Modern Authorship

Edited by Guillemette Bolens and Lukas Erne

ISBN: 978-3823366676

“This rich, challenging and exceptionally well conceived collection addresses the construction of authorship in medieval and early modern England, and revises received opinion in important ways. All the essays are worth attention; several should be considered essential reading.”

Return from Geneva

July 5, 2010

 

 

Cardiff University’s Elizabeth Ford, Johann Gregory and Étienne Poulard have just returned from the SAMEMES medieval and early modern authorship conference in Geneva.

A very short report:

“We had a tremendous time in a warm sunny Geneva. The conference was a great success with prestigious plenary speakers and high quality panel sessions.

The Cardiff Shakespeare panel went well, with the likes of Patrick Cheney, Katherine Duncan-Jones, Lukas Erne, Lynn Meskill and others in the audience. Thankfully Andy Kesson provided his usual solid support in the chair.

The conference included an enjoyable conference dinner and trips to Le Musée de la Réforme and La Foundation Bodmer, a collection which included a wealth of books including a Shakespeare First Folio.

Geneva  supplied friendly company, tastey food, cold beer, and a crystal clear lake for swimming!  

We particularly recommend the friendliest bar in Geneva called Le Chantilly on the Rue Dancet near Uni Mail.”
