• Michael L. Hays deposited What Means a Knight?: Red Cross Knight and Edgar in the group Group logo of Renaissance / Early Modern StudiesRenaissance / Early Modern Studies on Humanities Commons 1 week, 1 day ago

    Analyzes Spenser’s Red-Cross Knight and Shakespeare’s Edgar as chivalric knights in the tradition of English chivalric romance, and compares these writers’ attitudes toward the knights and the chivalry which they represent. Finds that, contrary to common interpretation, Spenser is the more modern, Shakespeare the more medieval, in their regard for chivalric knighthood.
