Helen Phillips

Professor Helen Phillips’s work focuses on the political and cultural implications of late-medieval writings and their afterlife. She has edited two major collections of essays on Robin Hood and associated bandit literature (2005, 2008) and, in 2000, published the highly influential An Introduction to the Canterbury Tales: Reading, Fiction, Context. In addition, Helen has also published extensively on dream poetry, romances, nineteenth-century medievalism and many other areas. Her most recent contribution to the MEMORI seminar series was a paper on Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales and medieval fish ponds.
