Revised and extended versions of 21 papers from the Seventh International Conference on Middle English, held in Lviv, Ukraine during August of 2011, explore diverse aspects of Middle English and the literature written in it. Among the topics are nominative resumptive pronouns in Old and Middle English, the preoccupation with the abuse of truth in Richard the Redeless and Thomas Usk's Testament of Love, finding pragmatic common ground between Chaucer's Dreamer and Eagle in The House of Fame, the rise and fall of to the end that and to the effect that in English, the insertion and loss of the voiceless dental plosive [t] in Middle English, and mapping rhetorical strategies related to persuasion in Middle English religious prose.
