contact email: 

Recent studies of the Pearl manuscript and its poems reveal potential for exploring new and unusual analyses of both manuscript and text. Arthur Bahr, William Storm, and others have especially suggested that poems in the Pearl-poems often reward close readings at the word and phrase level. Such readings, though some may seem unusual at first, may in fact be quite tenable in the context of each poem and of the others in the entire manuscript. Such readings can also affirm scholars' interest in puns and other forms of wordplay on the part of the poet(s) who wrote the Pearl-poems.
