St Erkenwald Hears a Heathen: Narrating a Goste Lyfe
This event is free to attend and open to all. The seminar will begin at 6pm, with tea and biscuits from 5.40pm.
Abstract: The Middle English tale of St Erkenwald offers, in a co-starring role, the reanimated corpse of a heathen judge, who argues a last legal case: the injustice of having missed out on the salvation of his soul. But who, and how, is this goste speaking? This talk explores the narrative focalization of the unnamed undead.
