    Written for researchers and advanced students of medieval French and English literature, this book provides original, provocative inter-pretations of canonical medieval texts in the light of influential modern theories, especially Lacanian psychoanalysis, presented in an accessible and lively way.   While exceeding his typical narrative, N-Town's Lazarus in fact embodies the medieval concept of the average mortal's ontological timeline: life, death, and "afterlife." Strictly speaking, though, Lazarus is not so much still alive when the episode begins as he is proleptically undead, rejuvenated via literary fabrication.

Both thrênos and góos are words of ancient Indo-European origin, meaning a shrill cry. [] In their most primitive form, these laments probably consisted mainly of inarticulate wailing over the dead man.

But etymology, though an invaluable indication of the origins and of the antiquity of words, cannot be pressed too far as a guide to their subsequent development.

Medieval life comes alive in this series combining skeleton analysis with dramatic reconstructions. This volume of essays provides a comprehensive treatment of a very significant component of the societies of late medieval and early modern Europe: the dead.

It argues that to contemporaries the 'placing' of the dead, in physical, spiritual and social terms, was a vitally important exercise, and one which often involved conflict and complex negotiation.5/5(1).

The Book of Psalms (/ s ɑː m z / or / s ɔː (l) m z / SAW(L)MZ; Hebrew: תְּהִלִּים, Tehillim, "praises"), commonly referred to simply as Psalms, the Psalter or "the Psalms", is the first book of the Ketuvim ("Writings"), the third section of the Hebrew Bible, and thus a book of the Christian Old Testament.
