Amadis in English

A Study in the Reading of Romance

Helen Moore

  • Advances a theory of 'removed reading' in which an anterior text is encountered via a later text that is based on, encloses, or otherwise pays homage to the anterior text
  • Provides a detailed case study over five centuries demonstrating with fine-grained detail and historical nuance the inter-dependence of Spanish, French, and English literature
  • A fresh and unusual reading of the relationship between Cervantes' Don Quixote and the texts that inspired it
