Brill’s Companions to Medieval Literatures and Cultures is a peer-reviewed series of handbooks providing scholarly, analytical investigations of literatures and cultures from across the medieval world, as well as offering an overview of the state of scholarship and a synthesis of debate. The volumes combine literary and cultural frameworks to examine on texts, writers, genres, themes, and more, with a directed focus on one language, period, or region; or offer a comparative approach to forge the creation of cross-cultural and interdisciplinary dynamics. The books are multi-author volumes, thoroughly planned out at an editorial level to ensure comprehensiveness and cohesion, maximising their value to the medievalist at every scholarly level.
Please note that the first volume in the series, A Companion to the Poema de Mio Cid, is available here
