ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
I am most grateful to the following friends and colleagues who made close, helpful, encouraging, and oftenindispensable comments on various aspects in this
 History
: Isobel Armstrong, Sandra Clark, Robert Inglesfield, PeterMudford, Graham Parry, Jan Jedrzejewski (formerly of the University of Lodz, now of the University of Ulster),Chantal Cornut-Gentille D’Arcy (of the University of Zaragoza), Mihaela Irimia (of the University of Bucharest), andAnita Weston-Bilardello (of the University of Perugia). I am also, if less directly, grateful to the many anonymousreaders of sections of the manuscript whose detailed comments were generally most helpful. Above all, I would like tothank my patient wife, Edwina Porter, for bearing the strains of composition and for offering immediate criticalcomment on pages thrust in front of her. Shirley Levy provided what I needed when I was most out of my depth:carefully considered direction and notes for the chapter on medieval literature. I am also grateful to my colleagues inthe English department at Birkbeck College for two terms of ‘light teaching’ over a four-year period which enabledme to complete certain parts of the text without significant interruption (except for examination scripts!). My finalthanks are due to Kim Scott Walwyn who flattered me into writing this book, to Andrew Lockett who coaxed andencouraged it into its present existence, to Jason Freeman who oversaw its progress through the press and to MichaelRogers who so patiently and scrupulously helped to proof read it.Andrew SandersBirkbeck CollegeMarch-October 1993
