Acknowledgements

My first debt of gratitude must be twin: to my doctoral supervisor at Cambridge, Richard Beadle, for his advice, guidance and encouragement, and to Anne Hudson, for her immense generosity with her time and expertise, and her abiding patience with my numberless importunities.

The munificent award of a post-doctoral fellowship from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Sciences enabled a crucial visit to Tokyo to examine manuscripts in Japanese collections. Toshiyuki Takamiya kindly provided access to relevant manuscripts in his personal collection, for which I remain very grateful. Nigel Wilson generously clarified some of the knottier points of scholastic Latin, while Andreas Janousch did the same for the finer points of academic German; I am much indebted to them for sparing the time from their own research. My fellow English tutors at Lincoln College, Oxford, Stephen Gill and Peter McCullough, have been unfailingly supportive: it is a pleasure to acknowledge their kindness and understanding. I must also thank Oxford University Press and the Editorial Board of Poetica for granting permission to reprint sections from two articles: 'Eliding the Interpreter: John Wyclif and
