New Medieval Literatures is an annual containing the best new interdisciplinary work in medieval textual studies. Volume VI deals in depth with one of the most important of medieval vernacular writers, Geoffrey Chaucer, his closest successor, Thomas Hoccleve, and his most important precursorin England, Marie de France. It proposes new models for thinking of medieval writing in terms of politics and geography. NML is famous for its analytical surveys, in which major, often younger, scholars review recent work across their entire fields. In keeping with the theme of the volume,Performing Dissent, NML 6 has three surveys: on heresy in Europe (by Mark Pegg) and Britain (by Fiona Somerset), and on medieval liturgy and performance (by Bruce Holsinger).
