Lazamon’s Brut – a twelfth-century verse history of Britain from its supposed foundation by Brutus to the seventh-century Cadwalader – is the first major work in English after the Norman conquest and also marks the first appearance of the Arthurian legends in English. Previous Brut scholarship has tended to focus on the philological and linguistic aspects of the text, despite its historical importance and interest.
Writing the Future demonstrates Lazamon’s use of prophecy as a narrative strategy to unite and respond to political and religious ideologies, and uses the work of Mikhail Bakhtin to rethink the relationship between literature and history in the Brut. Kelley Wickham-Crowley also considers the role of oral cultures in creating literary ones, the influence of the Welsh on the evolution of British political identity, and how disparate communities become one in Lazamon’s vision for Britain’s future.
This first full-length study of the Brut as a literary whole shows how Lazamon’s vision breaks new ground in the development of English narrative forms. Writing the Future will be an essential text for all those with interests in early Middle English literature, Arthurian studies and Celtic literature and history.
Kelley M. Wickham-Crowley is an Associate Professor of English and Director of Undergraduate Studies in English at Georgetown University. She has published widely on Lazamon’s work as well as on Anglo-Saxon and early medieval archaeological issues, and is a co-editor of Spaces of the Living and the Dead: An Archaeological Dialogue (1999).
