Steve Brie

This volume will examine the crucial relationship between literature and
ethics, as it has developed and changed from the late medieval period to
the present day. The focus of the volume is predicated upon three
interrelated themes: namely, instruction, judgement, and justice. The
chapters will be informed by theoretical, philosophical, and critical
