They are interested in the figure of a king who has lost his kingdom, strength, status, even his proper name, and yet in that loss acquires a kind of spiritual power over his conquerors. Historians, even modern historians, face these pressures all the time; we might think ourselves above trying to please patrons, but academics nonetheless have to deal with being accountable to their funders or employers, and with 'selling' research to the public and the media. Not only would we have no fiction, but we would not be able to repeat the kinds of stories we all tell, all the time, about our own lives — the kinds of stories which are rarely ever true in every detail but which knit communities together, help us to understand our own experiences, and let us imagine why things are as they are or how they could be better.

What a lot of pious disapproval for a crime eight centuries old! The novel perfectly encapsulates that particular epoch, as well as the anxiety of early adulthood.

It might be the job of a historian to work out what truth, if any, lies behind those stories, but it is also our job to try and understand why and how they might be told. Many new writers will misuse the comma, often using it too frequently.

The fictional character Heming acts as the bridge between the two worlds; as a Norwegian in England he's an outsider, free to give his allegiance to whomever he considers most deserving, and therefore clerk of Oxford in fiction.

For all their power, monasteries could be vulnerable, and at times they didn't have much to defend themselves but their history, in whatever tangible or intangible form that might take - documents and charters, relics, or an association with a powerful saint no one would want to cross.

It's not surprising that the words 'uyage' 'voyage' and 'passage', used to describe Gawain's journey to meet the Green Knight, are terms often used in Middle English as metaphors for death as you can see from the Middle English Dictionary entries: viage and passage. William's decision to go to England is born of this friendship-slash-rivalry: he explains to his men that if Harold has been killed he will avenge him, but if Harold is still alive he can get revenge on him - and seize control of England, because Harold's men will be wounded or exhausted from battle.
