About this book

Introduction

This book surveys the appearances of righteous heathens or virtuous pagans in travel literature, chronicles, romances, and sermons, as well as in the work of Langland, Chaucer and Gower. Grady also illustrates the way these figures have been used to explore a variety of historical, cultural and formal literary issues.
