Manchester Medieval Literature and Culture MUP

  • Provides a concise overview of the literature and poetry of medieval Ireland, in Latin and the Irish vernacular, from 700 to 1250
  • Brings unknown sources from medieval Ireland and a sophisticated medieval theory of place-writing, pilgrimage and imaginative travel into dialogue with European medieval literary, Irish, landscape and spatial studies
  • Contributes to studies of space and place by providing a foundational case study of one nation's development of a theory and practice of place-writing
  • Illuminates the foundational stages of the relationship between Ireland and England — political, cultural and textual - by bringing together texts in Latin and the Irish vernacular, by both Irish and English/British authors
