Medievalism : The Middle Ages in Modern England, Paperback Book

Medievalism : The Middle Ages in Modern England Paperback


Now reissued in an updated paperback edition, this groundbreaking account of the Medieval Revival movement examines the ways in which the style of the medieval period was re-established in post-Enlightenment England-from Walpole and Scott, Pugin, Ruskin, and Tennyson to Pound, Tolkien, and Rowling. "Medievalism ...takes a panoramic view of the 'recovery' of the Medieval in English literature, visual arts and culture...Ambitious, sweeping, sometimes idiosyncratic, but always interesting."-Rosemary Ashton, Times Literary Supplement "Deeply researched and stylishly written, Medievalism is an unalloyed delight that will instruct and amuse a wide readership."-Edward Short, Books & Culture
