Matilda Tomaryn Bruckner

  • Recontextualizes the authorship of Chrétien de Troyes, one of the most important writers of the Middle Ages, within the medieval concept of collective authorship
  • A new approach to the Conte du Graal's enigmatic inclusion of Christian issues within an Arthurian context
  • Situates the Conte du Graal in its manuscript context where most medieval readers would encounter it as part of an ensemble including one to four continuations
