    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Monsters play a fascinating and multi-faceted role in medieval literature. Compared with their plot-related tasks as guardians, adversaries, messengers, helpers, or companions to the hero, their role in literary self-reflection has so far been neglected. This study analyzes that role, drawing on both medieval discourse and recent media theory.
