Description

"Nicholas Love's Mirror of the Blessed Life of Jesus Christ" was an extremely influential work in its own time, but has seldom received the modern critical study it merits. To celebrate the acquisition of a fifteenth-century manuscript of the Mirror, Waseda University held a conference of specialists in various aspects of late-medieval English literary culture to study aspects of the text and its ramifications.Topics include studies of the hand and decoration of the Waseda manuscript; the connection between the Mirror and late-medieval English drama; the audience of devout women and others who owned and read manuscripts of the Mirror; the rhetoric of the punctuation of the text; its prose style, its early printing, and the production, scribal dialect, and textual affiliations of the Waseda manuscript. Professor Shoichi Oguro teaches at Waseda University; Dr Richard Beadle teaches in the Department of English, University of Cambridge; ProfessorMichael Sargent teaches in the Department of English, Queen's College, City University of New York. Contents and Contributors: Richard Beadle, Carol M. Meale, M.B. Parkes, Kathleen Scott, Christopher de Hamel, N.F.Blake, Koichi Yukushima, Akihiko Nakahara, Jeremy J. Smith, Lotte Hellinga, A.I. Doyle and Michael G. Sargent.
