The woodlands of medieval literature are lareas of transition that allow mutability and change. All of our texts explore the possibilities and dangers of a terrain that demanded (and still demands) attention, whilst defying interpretation.

From the Christianised chivalry of Gawain to the romantic knighthoods of the Lais and Sir Orfeo, the woods allow the traditional courtly pursuits of hunting and questing. They are also spaces for banditry and metamorphosis.

Our course culminates in As You Like It, a pastoral comedy that brings to the forefront all of these different modes of being within the woods and examines Shakespeare’s medieval debts. When confronted with the liminal space of the forest, how do we like it?
