Need to read this again to let it sink in properly, but a couple of my tutors have very much subscribed to Sedgwick's line of thought, in part if not in whole, and it all made a lot of sense to me. It's easy to apply it to the Arthurian legends, or to the 'Sagas of Warrior-Poets' in Norse studies...<br/><br/>My perennial problem with literary theory is that people make it sound far too complicated when they write books like this, but this isn't too bad, at least.
