A Century of British Medieval Studies

British Academy

This chapter examines the history and developments in the study of middle English literature in Great Britain during the twentieth century. At the beginning of the twentieth century the newly founded British Academy contained a group of Fellows who had made distinguished contributions to the study of early English language and literature. They include W.W. Skeat, Sir Israel Gollancz and Sir James Murray. However, most of the century's outstanding work was done by people who were not Fellows. Despite this the Academy can still be proud of the contribution of its Fellows to the century's achievements and in the nurturing of a new generation of scholars who will continue the work.

Keywords:   English literature, Great Britain, British Academy, English language, W.W. Skeat, Sir Israel Gollancz, Sir James Murray
