About this book


Drawing on new historical principles, this book examines literary and historical narratives, legal statutes and records, sermons, lyric poetry, and biblical exegesis circulating in medieval England in order to theorize the figure of the outlaw and uncover the legal, ethical, and social assumptions that underlie the practice of outlawry.

"The author introduces readers to a number of medieval texts that most scholars have not considered to be outlaw narratives; in doing so, he successfully advances the study of outlawry." - The Medieval Review
