Arthurian and Other Studies: Presented to Shunichi Noguchi

Front Cover
Shunʼichi Noguchi, Takashi Suzuki, Tsuyoshi Mukai
Boydell & Brewer, 1993 - Literary Criticism - 273 pages
These essays for Shunichi Noguchi, by scholars from Britain, the USA and Japan, reflect his approach to English studies and his wide range of interests from Beowulf to Ulysses. The principal focus, however, is on medieval and renaissance studies: nine of the essays are on Arthurian themes, to which Professor Noguchi has devoted his academic life. There are also essays on Beowulf, Chaucer, the York miracle plays, and Shakespeare, as well as textual studies of Gower, Wulfstan, Wycliffe and Caxton.
