Ed. by Paul Maurice Clogan, n.s. XVIII (Lanham, Maryland: Rowman & Littlefield, 1992). x + 249 pp. $50.00. ISBN 0-8476-7705-2. The volume includes: Lillian M. Bisson, |Brunetto Latini as a failed mentor; John Finlayson, |King Horn and Havelok the Dane: a case of mistaken identities'; Lynn H. Nelson, |King Sancho's horse and the principle of sovereignty in fourteenth-century Aragon'; Leslie Dunton-Downer, |Treasures in the body: an Old French acrostic'; Spurgeon Baldwin and James W. Marchand, |The Virgin Mary as advocate before the heavenly court'; Dayle Seidenspinner-Nunez, |The politics of (non)-conversion: the Vida de Santa Maria Egipciaca and La Ceslestina'; Paul M. Clogan, |The Knight's Tale and the ideology of the roman antique; David R. Carlson, |The "Grammarians' War" 1519-1521, humanist careerism in early Tudor England, and printing'; five review articles; and two book reviews. Both Finlayson's and Clogan's essays are valuable contributions to Middle English studies. This is an extraordinarily wide-ranging collection of articles which, unlike some earlier volumes of Medievalia et Humanistica, are more or less completely unrelated to each other.
