Medieval Philology And Nationalism: The British And German Editors Of Thomas Of Erceldoune, Richard Utz Jan 2006

Medieval Philology And Nationalism: The British And German Editors Of Thomas Of Erceldoune, Richard Utz

Richard Utz

The reception of the late fourteenth-century romance/lay/ballad Thomas of Erceldoune by romantic enthusiasts, antiquarians, modernist philologists, and twentieth-century medievalists reveals the dangerous indebtedness of a quasi-sciencific medieval philology to competing national paradigmatic constructions (German, English, Scottish) on the one hand and the ongoing foundational value of philological work for current medieval textual scholarship on the other. Thus, while debunking the disinterestedness claimed by modernist philology, the essay attests to the enduring success of philological editorial practice regarding this specific late medieval poem.

Medieval Nominalism And The Literary Questions: Selected Studies, Richard Utz, Terry Barakat Apr 2004

Medieval Nominalism And The Literary Questions: Selected Studies, Richard Utz, Terry Barakat

Richard Utz

Like few other topics in the academic study of medieval literature, the search for the possible parallels between philosophical and literary texts reveals the not always peaceful coexistence among the three basic approaches to the study of medieval literature and culture: While hard-core medieval philologists would not accept any claims for a “literary nominalism” unless direct textual dependence can be demonstrated, scholars in medieval studies and the comparative study of medieval literature have shown themselves more accepting of investigations which diagnose a certain nominalistic Zeitgeist, mentality, or milieu especially in late medieval culture; and scholars preferring presentist/postmodern approaches have ...

Gender And Time In Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, Richard Utz

Richard Utz

The word "time," as defined by cultural critic Norbert Elias in his essay on the sociology of knowledge, is a human symbol "for a relation which a group of human beings, who possess the biological capability of memorization and synthesis, establishes among several events, one of which they standardize as the frame of reference or measuring rod for the others". Similarly, Aaron Gurevic underlines there there are no universal definitions of space and time ...
