The contributors to this festschrift consider the relation of aesthetics to Old as well as Middle English literature, including Chaucer especially, Sir Gawain and theGreen Knight, Gower, Lydgate, as well as  medievalisms both Romantic and modern.

It requires but brief acquaintance with Howell Chickering, either through his publications or inpropria persona, to delight in the extraordinary sweep of his knowledge and interests. Happily, the intent of this volume is to celebrate the fullness of Chickering’s reach. The contributors to this festschrift were asked to consider, in their own ways, aesthetics in relation to medieval literature. A bevy of contributors have responded to Chickering’s extensive scholarship on Old English as well as Middle English subjects – Chaucer especially, but also Sir Gawain and theGreen Knight, Gower, Lydgate; furthermore, several contributors follow his other interests from the Middle Ages to medievalisms both Romantic and modern.
