Hyperion and the Hobbyhorse: Studies in Carnivalesque Subversion

by Arthur Lindley

         ISBN: 978-0874135886

         Published in 1996


         Order Book

This book studies the interaction in late medieval and Renaissance English literature of Augustinian theology and the modes of subversive humor Bakhtin calls carnival. This interaction produces a sustained interrogation of public identity which limits medieval culture and its major texts to those of the Renaissance.
