Cambridge University Press has released a paperback version of my book, English Alliterative Verse: Poetic Tradition and Literary History. It’s naturally much more affordable than the hardcover: $29.99 and a further 20% off with code WEISKOTT2019.
I have a new essay on David Perry’s blog, How Did We Get into This Mess?, called “What Is Education For? – To Kill a Mockingbird and Medieval Literature.” It’s about Biloxi School District’s decision last month to ban (then partially unban) To Kill a Mockingbird.
I have a guest blog post at Fair Field out today, on the challenges of higher education as a social and ethical project, in the fourteenth century and today. It’s called “What’s the point of learning? Piers Plowman and education today.”
