Oral-Formulaic Diction in the Middle English Verse Romance analyses the use of oral formulae in the Middle English verse romance between the 13th and 14th centuries. The methodological basis for the conducted analysis has been constituted by the classic studies of conventional language structures of literary works which were created in the context of cultures dominated by oral models of social interaction and defined by the interaction of oral and literate modes of aesthetic expression. The argument stems from the Lord and Parry methodological tradition, in the form augmented by recent developments in oral-formulaic studies. By applying close reading to a number of romance texts, it seeks to define the precise nature of the poems’ reliance on the techniques of composition, transmission and delivery characteristic of oral literary cultures. The parallel aim of the book is to describe and partially retrieve the mental grids governing formulaic distribution within those particular literary works.

Keywords: English chivalric romance, 13th and 14th century poetry.
