This 1988 volume, collected here are the principal essays of Elizabeth Salter published between 1966 and her death in 1980, together with three chapters of a book on the literary culture of England in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries on which she was working in the last years of her life, and a version of her brilliant lectures on the theme of the Annuciation to the Shepherds in literature, drama and art given during those years. Elizabeth Salter is recognised as one of the most distinguished medieval scholars of her generation, particularly noted for her work on Langland and Chaucer, and on the relationship of literature and the visual arts. The strength and consistency of her views, the persistent and urgent nature of her preoccupations, and the depth of scholarship and skill of presentation, all emerge more clearly than ever in this volume.
