Item description for Orality and Literacy in the Middle Ages: Essays on a Conjunction and Its Consequences in Honour of D. H. Green (Utrecht Studies in Medieval Literacy) by Mark Chinca; Christopher Young...
"The most important part of the title of this book is the word and". These words form the memorable conclusion to D H Green's study Medieval Listening and Reading; they encapsulate how, in the Middle Ages, orality and literacy are not to be considered as two separate and largely unrelated cultures or modes of textual transmission, but as elements in a mutual interplay and interpenetration. In this volume, scholars from Britain, Germany and North America follow Green's insistence on viewing medieval orality and literacy in their conjunction, opening up new areas for investigation as well as reformulating old problems. The languages and literatures covered include English, Latin, French, Occitan and German, and the essays span the whole of the period from the early Middle Ages through to the fifteenth century.
