Abstract

Examines the problems inherent in understanding the context of humour and obscenity in medieval literary works, highlighting variously the interpretative problems inherent in mapping attitudes, as well as the underexplored dimensions of textual transmission and the relation of comedic material to other genres and discourses in manuscript context.
