Description

Between 1750 and 1850 Danish poets and literary scholars discovered, interpreted, and recycled the literary and cultural heritage from the Middle Ages: Poets and writers adapted forms and motifs drawn from medieval literature, or invented imaginative medieval storyworlds, and scholars recovered, annotated, and edited medieval works. The project proposes to write the first literary history of this Danish romantic medievalism.
