Reviews

Critten adds considerable nuance to established literary-critical positions, and frequently offers fresh insights which no student of Middle English literature should ignore. MEDIUM AEVUM

Critten does demonstrate an alert literary intelligence and he offers much sensitive literary analysis TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT

[.] a careful, considered book on an important and understudied topic. Critten succeeds in placing manuscript studies at the heart of literary interpretation. Author, Scribe, and Book contributes substantially to this important field of study. MODERN LANGUAGE REVIEW

In general Author, Scribe and Book lives up to the promises of its title. As a study of 'late medieval English literature' that incorporates excursions into biography and palaeography and analyses of Latin and French texts, it demonstrates the disconnectedness of fifteenth-century writing, an aspect that literary histories tend to downplay. PARERGON

At its core, Author, Scribe, and Book offers inventive and significant readings of these authors' texts and the manuscripts that contain them. SPECULUM

The book is well-written, interesting, carefully argued, discriminating in its up-to-date scholarship, and has an interesting main thesis. JOURNAL OF THE EARLY BOOK SOCIETY

Critten's study is a most welcome addition to the ever-growing body of scholarly works which consider the authorial voice in Middle English from a variety of angles. His analysis is clear and incisive, and pays close attention to codicological and palaeographical detail. ANGLIA
