The Persistence of Medievalism: Narrative Adventures in Contemporary Culture

New York: Palgrave/ Macmillan, 2002

The Persistence of Medievalism Angela J. Weisl, Ph.D.
Department of English

Through an exploration of several contemporary cultural phenomena, this book reveals the narrative underpinnings of public discourse. The ways these particular forms of storytelling shape our assumptions are examined through a series of examples that demonstrate the intrinsic ways medievalism persists in the modern world, thus perpetuating archaic ideas of gender, ideology, and doctrine.
