New developments

After a suitable pause to consider how to take my work on Bevis in new directions, it has suddenly dawned on me that one character grabbed my attention right from first reading, and so I have begun writing a short commentary on the King of Scotland’s Daughter, the Countess, Bevis’s mother. It is all too easy to call her his ‘wicked mother’, and from the official medieval perspective that is certainly how she would be perceived. But her characterisation offers insights into the life of a nobleowoman, and its psychological effect, which is, I think, worthy of further consideration. Once it is completed, it will be posted here on its own page.
