Charles D'Orleans: The English of a French Poet

20th November 2017, 18:00 to 19:00, Elvet Riverside 141, Professor Ad Putter (Bristol University)

All welcome to this next lecture in the series Mothertongues? Gender, Ideology and the Vernacular Languages in Medieval Culture.

Professor Ad Putter (Bristol University) is probably best known for his work on the Gawain-poet (including a recent Penguin edition of the Gawain-poet’s poetry, co-edited with Myra Stokes), but he has wide-ranging interests, and is always a lively speaker.
