    A study of the medieval English dream-poem, set against the background of classical and medieval visionary and religious writings and the theory of dreams from classical times down to Freud and Jung. In this first general treatment of one of the most popular kinds of literature in the Middle. Turning to Mum and the Sothsegger, Schiff focuses on characters who advise the narrator on speaking truth to power in the dangerous Lancastrian political scene, advice that displays shrewd awareness of current writing practices. Schiff writes clearly and precisely, with touches of humor that surface in relation to the vintage criticism.
