01-Jan-12 - Book Highlight for MLA: Situational Poetics in Robert Henryson’s The Testament of Cresseid by Nickolas A. Haydock
Cambria Press is proud to highlight the much-anticipated book, Situational Poetics in Robert Henryson’s The Testament of Cresseid, by Nickolas A. Haydock that was published and is already receiving rave reviews from prominent scholars in the field.
As Professor Stefan Hall puts it, “Robert Henryson deserves his exalted place in the ranks of the greatest Scottish writers, yet Professor Haydock’s book also situates Henryson in relation to English and Classical greats, worthy to be measured alongside Geoffrey Chaucer, Aesop, Boethius, and even Virgil. All in all, Haydock’s book takes its position alongside the very best studies of Robert Henryson and eclipses most if not all of them. Situational Poetics is a sophisticated and nuanced study of one of Scotland’s greatest poets and should prove engaging and invaluable to anyone studying the literature of late-medieval Britain.”
Come to the Cambria Press booth #601 at the MLA annual convention book exhibit hall to review this brilliant book!
