Caxton in the Middle of English

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Discusses the vexed topic of the shift from Middle to Early Modern English and what can be said about any consciousness of that shift in the period itself (c.1450-c.1550). I use Caxton's treatment of late fourteenth-century English prose works as a test case for evaluating, via a small number of case studies, the early modern sense of medieval archaism in language.
