About This Item

Albany: State University of New York Press, 1975. Hard Cover. Fine/Very Good. 8vo. Full cream cloth boards. xiii, 293 pp. [32] pp. B&W plates of illustrations. Dust jacket is torn and chipped at spine head, chipped and bumped at spine ends and corners. The present volume contains eleven essays originally presented at the Fourt and Fifth Annual Conferences of the Center for Medieval and Early Renaissance Studies in 1970 and 1971. The first five essays concern the concept of the hero in the Middle Ages, the others the concept of the hero in the Renaissance. The papers as a group are notably wide in range and indicate as a whole that the artists and writers of the medieval period and the Renaissance may not have been so sure of the concept of the heroic as we are. They reveal in fact that the authors of both periods entertained many disparate views of the hero and heroic action.
