Usually delivers within 2 weeks.

Description

Now reissued in an updated paperback edition, this groundbreaking account of the Medieval Revival movement examines the ways in which the style of the medieval period was re-established in post-Enlightenment England-from Walpole and Scott, Pugin, Ruskin, and Tennyson to Pound, Tolkien, and Rowling.

" Medievalism . . . takes a panoramic view of the 'recovery' of the Medieval in English literature, visual arts and culture. . . . Ambitious, sweeping, sometimes idiosyncratic, but always interesting."-Rosemary Ashton, Times Literary Supplement

"Deeply researched and stylishly written, Medievalism is an unalloyed delight that will instruct and amuse a wide readership."-Edward Short, Books & Culture
