The next stage

Work on the entry on Bevis for the online Literary Encyclopaedia is close to completion, and hopefully this will bring knowledge of Bevis to a wider readership. It also seems that the final piece in the structure of my article on the earlier Boeve (the source text for Bevis) ready to be put in place, I am about to put in a proposal to a reputable academic publisher to see if a fully developed literary treatment of Bevis may be acceptable. Many fine essays have been written on aspects of the romance, but there is a great deal still to say about the story as a piece of literature. I am particularly interested in the scope of its symbolism, its relationship to medieval Welsh literature, and its treatment of women.
