The alliterative lines are always unrhymed. However, her discussion ofthe term and of its potential application to romance becomes so broad that it could, conceivably, be applied to an analysis of almost any work of literature.

    They bring it to the queen. Medieval Iberia: Readings from Christian, Muslim, and Jewish Sources, her monumental collection of primary source material, is also available from the University of Pennsylvania Press. As scholarly opinion about the force and popularity of late medieval English crusading has changed from a story of decline to a story continued emphasis, some critics have attempted to place romances such as Sir Isumbras within the context of crusade literature. They set out with nothing except the torn clothes they are wearing, begging for food along the way. This was the basis for another Anglo-Norman poem, the Lai d'havelok, which in turn may have influenced Havelok the Dane.

The ideals of chivalry were an attempt to channel the knight's potential for unrestrained mayhem into socially acceptable channels. Spenser's memories of native romance involve a more troubled engagement with that tradition of providential national history as well as an endeavour to see in pre-Reformation romance a prophetic and objective authority for Protestant belief.

This book is essential reading for scholars of Europe of any period and those seeking to understand racism in the world more broadly today because of the legacy of European colonialism.

And I am worried, too, about the larger question of whether or not the maiming and deaths of men and women in the war in Iraq is justified by the supposed causes of this war, however we might define them.
