 About the Book 

First published by CUP in 1989, The Medieval Greek Romance provides basic information for the non-specialist about Greek fiction during the period 1071-1453, as well as proposing new solutions to problems that have vexed previous generations of scholars. Roderick Beaton applies sophisticated methods of literary analysis to the material, and the bridges of the artificial gap which has separated Byzantineliterature, in a form of ancient Greek as both homogenous and of a high level of literary sophistication.Throughout, consideration is given to relations and interconnections with similar literature in western Europe. As most of the texts discussed are not available in English translation, the argument is illustrated by lucid plot summaries and extensive quotation (accompanied by literal English renderings).For this edition, The Medieval Greek Romance has been revised throughout and expanded with the addition of an Afterword which assesses and responds to recent work on the subject.
