Experimental Glossing Practices in Manuscript and Print

Jane Griffiths

  • Traces the early development, in English vernacular literature, of the under-researched form of the marginal gloss
  • Breaches the artificial boundaries between medieval and renaissance studies and between manuscript and print studies
  • Identifies new kinds of literary experimentation
  • Discusses transmission and the material form of the text as influences on authorial theory
