Caxton s Morte Darthur

Author: Takako Kato
Publisher: The Society for the Study of Medieval Languages and Literature
ISBN: 9780907570158
Release Date: 2002-10-01
Genre: History

Revisiting the fundamental texts of Sir Thomas Malory’s Morte Darthur, the Winchester manuscript and William Caxton’s printed edition, and investigating what happened in Caxton’s workshop are the best ways of discovering what Malory intended to write. This study investigates the irregular use of paraphs and the missing chapter-divisions in Caxton’s Morte, and reveals frequent alterations to it in order to fit his text on the page. It identifies the points at which alterations are most likely to have been made, and suggests that Caxton may have consulted the Winchester manuscript while he was preparing his edition, regularly with regard to textual divisions.

Release Date: 2005-01-01
Genre: Literary Criticism

Wirnt von Grafenberg's Wigalois is one of the most important Arthurian novels of the High Middle Ages. The novel, written in 1210/20, draws upon motifs from the 'classical' Middle High German novels, e.g., from Wolfram's Parzival and Hartmann's Erec. This new edition includes not only the Middle High German text (by Kapteyn), but also a translation in modern German. Moreover, it provides a commentary, detailed descriptions of the edition and tradition history, a register of names and the commentary, a bibliography of Wigalois, as well as an epilogue about the work and its author.
