Abstract

This volume reassesses the use of the werewolf figure in six medieval romances (French, Latin, and Middle English) that date from the twelfth to fourteenth centuries, and carries research of the werewolf into the field of post-humanism through its examination of how medieval authors disperse the identity of the knight across a variety of assemblages that incorporate human and animal bodies, material objects, physical spaces, and political apparatuses, especially sovereign power and feudal structures.
