Areas of Study: Medieval Studies, Print Culture
My primary focus in Medieval Literature is on the works of the Pearl-Poet, bound together in the Cotton Nero A.x. manuscript. As this manuscript is the sole surviving witness to these works, there is little definitively known regarding their author. I am looking to find new threads tying these poems together and, using these threads, I hope to evidence an underlying critical commentary regarding the Ricardian court in the late 14th century.
