This offers an in depth survey the traditions of lyric poetry during the English Middle Ages. Beginning with the legacy of medieval Latin, it traces the rise of the short, vernacular poem in a variety of social, literary, and material contexts. Our approaches include: the place of the lyric in manuscript culture; the social facts and literary fictions of oral performance; the political environments in which lyrics come to be; the relationships of lyric to other literary forms in the European Middle Ages; England's status as a trilingual community that creates contexts for lyric production and reception in Latin, English, and French; critical and historical theories of the lyric as genre, performance, and defining literary form.
