By: Dennis P. Donahue (author)Paperback
More than 4 weeks availability
This work should be of interest to students of both Early Middle English poetry and oral-formulaic composition. This study examines the nature of the repeated formulas and themes in the Brut. It argues that Lawman made artistic use of formulas, themes, and imagery in revising his Anglo-Norman source and creating darker portraits of Vortigern, Uther, and, especially, King Arthur.
