I'm also a textual editor, and among my work is Old and Middle English, c. Living Through Conquest addresses the political concerns of English writers and their constructed audiences, and investigates the agenda of manuscript producers, from those whose books were very much in the vein of earlier English codices to those innovators who employed English precisely to demonstrate its contemporaneity in a multitude of contexts and for a variety of different audiences. In this, she does not stop short with only critique; she provides insights of remedy that cannot be ignored. In this book, Elaine Treharne offers both a lamentation about scholarly reception of eleventh- and twelfth-century English literature as well as a corrective analyses of key issues and texts. The first part covers the texts produced in the aftermath of the conquest of Cnut in 1016; the second after that of William of Normandy in 1066.

I research the hapticity and phenomenology of the Medieval book, and will be publishing The Sensual Book,500-1200based on this work. A great deal of attention. Living Through Conquest addresses the political concerns of English writers and their constructed audiences, and investigates the agenda of manuscript producers, from those whose books were very much in the vein ofearlier English codices to those innovators who employed English precisely to demonstrate its contemporaneity in a multitude of contexts and for a variety of different audiences. She especially offers many insights on topics of religious texts--most prominently, manuscripts, sermons, and the psalms in the post-conquest period. This is perhaps the place to level my greatest criticism: that the book is short enough that it offers only a taste of the topic and possible readings of the evidence; though perhaps this displays my own gluttony for further study of the subjects discussed throughout Treharne's work.

While many scholars to date have seen the period from 1060 to 1220 as a literary lacuna as far as English is concerned, this book demonstrates unequivocally that the hundreds of vernacular works surviving from this period attest to a lively and rich textual tradition. Living Through Conquest addresses the political concerns of English writers and their constructed audiences, and investigates the agenda of manuscript producers, from those whose books were very much in the vein of earlier English codices to those innovators who employed English precisely to demonstrate its contemporaneity in a multitude of contexts and for a variety of different audiences. She really listens to what the text is saying, and steadfastly refuses to embroider her own ideas onto what is before her or to settle for someone else's interpretations.

As Treharne admits, there remains an iceberg of evidence to consult, and she examines only bits from the tip; yet her approach also encourages further study to be undertaken in the future. What is there, however, is presented in detail and analysed meticulously. My main research interests are in Early British manuscripts--their materiality, contents and contexts of production and reception. English became the language of choice of a usurper king; the language of collective endeavour for preachers and prelates; and the language of resistance andnegotiation in the post-Conquest period. By engaging with the materiality of the literary text, its production, and reception history, and frequently testing and exploring the boundaries of the notion of text itself, the volumes in the series question familiar frameworks and provide innovative interpretations of both canonical and less well-known works.
