Abstract

Critics have discounted Thomas Malory's interest in abstruse concepts, and that Malory shows no apparent interest in the 'fashionable intellectual issues' that occupied other late-medieval authors of English literature. Here, Corrie argues that the stylistic simplicity of Thomas Malory's Morte is not matched by an intellectual simplicity on the part of its author, and, contrary to many interpretations of Malory's writing, that a continuity with foregoing English writers is discernible not only in the issues raised by the Morte but in Malory's stance towards those issues as well.
