Abstract

The late Lynette R. Muir of the University of Leeds was a leading scholar in the field of medieval drama studies. While working initially on French drama, she eventually broadened her research to include the drama literature of all of medieval Europe. This session in her memory embraces a wide range of topics, all concerning French medieval drama: connections between English and French drama; manuscript studies; the role of the fool as glossator; and the 20th-century revival of medieval drama.
