Literary Lecture - The Last Medieval Book: Le Morte Darthur

During his lecture, Dr James Wade, Fellow Director of Studies in English at Girton, will talk about The Last Medieval Book: Le Morte Darthur. We will look at the long afterlife of one of the most important and enduring works of literature from the Middle Ages. We will peek in on instances of scholarly debate, social engineering, bowdlerisation, backstabbing, and niche-market profiteering. Neo-medieval video games are unlikely to get more than a mention. 

Dr James Wade

Dr James WadeJames Wade is the Jane Elizabeth Martin Fellow in English at Girton. He is the author of Fairies in Medieval Romance and Sir Torrent of Portingale, along with articles on Thomas Malory's Morte Darthur and other works of medieval literature.
