The effect of cityscapes on the creative imagination has in recent years
become one of the countless concerns of contemporary cultural criticism, but
surprisingly little attention has been paid to the medieval roots of the
perception of urban environments. Building upon the considerable recent work
on the city in the Middle Ages, this session aims to address this critical

medieval studies, and it is hoped that we can define more clearly his
position in the contemporary academy and his relation to the London culture
in which he was working, especially the relationship between his poetry and
that of his contemporaries and successors.
