Essayists in this collection break down the vital relationship between reading and space in medieval culture. A variety of approaches are employed to discuss the topic including literary analysis and contemporary film and architectural theory, in turn, complicating the notion of the stable, fixed text and reader.

Spaces for Reading in Later Medieval England, Mary Flannery and Carrie Griffin set out to contribute to scholarly debates on the history of reading by focusing on the 'relationship between where reading took place and how it took place'. they aim to shed new light on different reading practices, and on the attitudes and responses people in late medieval England may have had towards reading. (Patricia Stoop, sehepunkte, Vol. 19 (4), 2019)

The essays here offer an in-depth, insightful exploration of those complexities. Recommended for research collections, especially those supporting medieval, early modern, and/or textual studies programs. Summing Up: Recommended. Advanced students through researchers/faculty. (J. Stevens, Choice, Vol. 54 (4), December, 2016)

Mary C. Flannery is a Maître Assistante of English literature at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland. She is the author of John Lydgate and the Poetics of Fame.

Carrie Griffin is a lecturer in early modern English literature in the School of Culture and Communication at the University of Limerick, Ireland and a Research Associate of English at the University of Bristol, UK. She published an edition of The Wise Book of Philosophy and Astronomy with Middle English Texts/Winter in 2013.

Drawing on a rich variety of material, this collection of essays demonstrates that the spaces in which reading took place (or in which reading could take place) in later medieval England directly influenced how and why reading happened.
