Now reissued in an updated paperback edition, this groundbreaking account of the Medieval Revival movement examines the ways in which the style of the medieval period was re-established in post-Enlightenment England-from Walpole and Scott, Pugin, Ruskin, and Tennyson to Pound, Tolkien, and Rowling.


 
Medievalism . . . takes a panoramic view of the ‘recovery’ of the Medieval in English literature, visual arts and culture. . . . Ambitious, sweeping, sometimes idiosyncratic, but always interesting.”


Rosemary Ashton, Times Literary Supplement   


 


“Deeply researched and stylishly written, Medievalism is an unalloyed delight that will instruct and amuse a wide readership.”


Edward Short, Books & Culture
Michael Alexander held the chair of English at St. Andrews University. His many books include A History of English Literature and Reading Shakespeare.
