It’s been a bit of a struggle but at last something like a research paper is beginning to emerge out of a chaos of sources and ideas as I have kept nibbling away at the material that makes up my argument for an unnoticed adventus in Boeve. Today I found Henry of Huntingdon had written a poem that also dramatises the crucial historical moment to which I think Boeve looks back. I just have to locate the right source now. It’s been lovely getting back to the essays in the METh journals too as I’ve been checking them for anything on entry ceremonies. Lots more to do, but that’s a task for another day.
