The Hero’s Place: Medieval Literary Traditions of Space and Belonging
Molly Robinson Kelly, assistant professor of French, presents an innovative study of how the spaces described in a literary work contribute dynamically and profoundly to that work’s meaning. She focuses on three seminal works of the Middle Ages—The Life of Saint Alexis, The Song of Roland, and Tristan and Iseult.
