Description:

The romances in this volume contain some of the finest imaginative work of what is known as the Matter of England, the non-Arthurian romances that deal largely with English subjects and locales. They are notable for the attention they pay to the socio-political issues contained within folktale motifs rather than for their interest in the nuances of courtly behavior, and they and other manuscript evidence suggest that romance reading in England was hardly confined to the nobility but became part of the effort of an increasingly prosperous and literate middle class to model itself after the upper class. These romances span a broad period of the Middle Ages, from c. 1225 (King Horn) to c. 1355-99 (Athelston). They combine social realism with superhuman or supernatural events in forms that offer their heroes potentialities for expression and possibilities for transformation that few, if any, genres provide.
