I am writing my MA dissertation on the role of musicians in Middle English poetry. I am starting to reach the point where, even though it’s nowhere near where I want it to be and nothing works the way I thought it would in my head, I may just have to call it done.
One of the good things, though, is that all of the texts I am working on are available online. So, if anyone’s interested….
Sir Orfeo – This was the poem that inspired the dissertation topic.
Orpheus and Eurydice – Another Orpheus story, but very different than the above.
Sir Cleges – A Christmas story, sort of.
My deadline is Monday…..I will post again and talk more about these texts, maybe, after I’ve finished and turned it in.
