The Oxford History of Classical Reception in English Literature (OHCREL) is designed to offer a comprehensive investigation of the numerous and diverse ways in which literary texts of the classical world have stimulated responses and refashioning by English writers. Covering the full range of English literature from the early Middle Ages to the present day, OHCREL both synthesizes existing scholarship and presents cutting-edge new research, employing an international team of expert contributors for each of the five volumes. OHCREL endeavours to interrogate, rather than inertly reiterate, conventional assumptions about literary 'periods', the processes of canon-formation, and the relations between literary and non-literary discourse. It conceives of 'reception' as a complex process of dialogic exchange and, rather than offering large cultural generalizations, it engages in close critical analysis of literary texts. It explores in detail the ways in which English writers' engagement with classical literature casts as much light on the classical originals as it does on the English writers' own cultural context. This first volume, and fourth to appear in the series, covers the years c.800-1558, and surveys the reception and transformation of classical literary culture in England from the Anglo-Saxon period up to the Henrician era. Chapters on the classics in the medieval curriculum, the trivium and quadrivium, medieval libraries, and medieval mythography provide context for medieval reception. The reception of specific classical authors and traditions is represented in chapters on Virgil, Ovid, Lucan, Statius, the matter of Troy, Boethius, moral philosophy, historiography, biblical epics, English learning in the twelfth century, and the role of antiquity in medieval alliterative poetry. The medieval section includes coverage of Chaucer, Gower, and Lydgate, while the part of the volume dedicated to the later period explores early English humanism, humanist education, and libraries in the Henrician era, and includes chapters that focus on the classicism of Skelton, Douglas, Wyatt, and Surrey.

Comprehensive but accessible, the Encyclopedia of the Middle Ages offers a wealth of information not easily available from any other single source, providing 3,000 detailed and concise articles on all aspects of the Middle Age. Six years in the making, this massive work is a co-publication of four international publishers (James Clarke in the UK; Less Editions du Cerf in France; Citta Nuova in Italy; and Fitzroy Dearborn in the United States); it is the collaborative effort of more than 600 scholars coordinated by a team of 30 experts, under the editorial supervision of Andre Vauchez.Encyclopedia of the Middle Ages is based on the scholarship of the last thirty years, and provides both a magisterial overview of the period from the 5th to the 15th centuries as well as a fresh approach to the subject. Cultural, religious, intellectual, social and political history are all covered, and although the main concentration is on Europe and Christendom, the rise of Islam and the Arabs, and of other cultural with which Europeans came into contact, is also extensively treated. Art and architecture (including the building of the great cathedrals), the growth of universities, developments in law, and scientific discoveries are all treated in the same depth as political history. Archaeological, geographical, historical, linguistic, philosophical and theological topics receive full treatment. Biographies of monarchs, bishops and major intellectual figures are included, as are descriptions of varying lengths of major ideas and beliefs.Lively in style and accessible, and enhanced by 640 color and black-and-white illustrations and maps, Encyclopedia of the Middle Ages is the first work thatcomprehensively clarifies how much we still owe to that manifold culture and will be an essential resource for both public and academic libraries.
