Booklet 3 of the Auchinleck Manuscript

(p.105) Chapter Two Fragmentary Forms of Imitative Fantasy
Fragments and Assemblages
Arthur Bahr
University of Chicago Press

This chapter presents a reading of booklet 3 of the Auchinleck manuscript. It argues that the codicological elements of booklet 3—its internal structure, relation to the rest of the manuscript, and codicological details such as catchwords and page layout—both complement and complicate its texts' literary explorations of fantasies.

Keywords:   medieval manuscripts, codicological elements, fantasies, auchinleck manuscript
