Gestures and Looks in Medieval Narrative

Synopsis

Gestures and looks played an even more important role in public and private exchanges of medieval society, than they do today. Gestures meant more than words, for example, in ceremonies of homage and fealty. In this compelling study, medievalist Burrow examines the role of non-verbal communication in a range of narrative texts, including Chaucer's Troilus and Criseyde, the anonymous Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Malory's Morte D'arthur, the romances of Chr¿tien de Troyes, the prose Lancelot, Boccaccio's Il Filostrato, and Dante's Commedia.
