Malory and emotion

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference paperChapterpeer-review


This chapter considers Le Morte Darthur (1469) by Sir Thomas Malory in the light of recent critical approaches that treat emotions as simultaneously cognitive and embodied, and as manifested in narrative through interactions of speech, action, event, objects and spatial environment. I also examine the situation of emotions within Malorian structures of power, community and gender, and in relation to ideas of literary genre.
