The English Romance in Time

Transforming Motifs from Geoffrey of Monmouth to the Death of Shakespeare

Helen Cooper

  • Concentrates on the elements of story that have been perennially fascinating including quests, magic, lost children, rudderless boats, and fairy mistresses
  • A study of how apparently timeless story motifs change over time, and can indeed be closely integrated with the processes of history
  • Takes a revisionary look at the question of women's desire
