Descripción

First Edition. Frontispiece, xiv, 377 pp; 32 plates. Original cloth. Small amount of marginal pencilling in first third of book, else Near Fine, in near fine dust jacket. 'Elizabeth Salter was a teacher of rare brilliance, whose inspiration remains strong among her many students. . . . Although her scholarly career was cut short by untimely death in 1980, her extensive writings on medieval literature, art, and culture remain. Salter's former colleague at York, Derek Pearsall, and her daughter, Nicolette Zeeman, a medievalist herself, have edited the present collection of her work, which contains previously published articles and the beginnings of two projects left unfinished at her death. The volume is impressive testimony to Salter's achievement and is distinguished by the range and depth of its learning as well as by the vigorous clarity of its arguments, many of which anticipate approaches that have now become widely popular. The heart of the volume contains twelve republished essays arranged in three sections: Piers Plowman and alliterative poetry, Chaucer, and medieval literature and the visual arts. Salter's writings are fundamentally interdisciplinary, as the best medieval scholarship usually is, with a strong interest in the relationship between art and literature and in the specific historical environment that gave rise to particular works. Her appreciation of the full cultural and social context of medieval poetry reminds us that most academic literary criticism is parochial and self-reflective' (C. David Benson, review for Speculum, Vol. 66, No. 3, July, 1991, pp. 689-691). N° de ref. de la librería 16937

Sinopsis:

This 1988 volume, collected here are the principal essays of Elizabeth Salter published between 1966 and her death in 1980, together with three chapters of a book on the literary culture of England in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries on which she was working in the last years of her life, and a version of her brilliant lectures on the theme of the Annuciation to the Shepherds in literature, drama and art given during those years. Elizabeth Salter is recognised as one of the most distinguished medieval scholars of her generation, particularly noted for her work on Langland and Chaucer, and on the relationship of literature and the visual arts. The strength and consistency of her views, the persistent and urgent nature of her preoccupations, and the depth of scholarship and skill of presentation, all emerge more clearly than ever in this volume.
