Somehow I managed to only blog once in March. On top of that, it’s been ages since I’ve written a real medieval post. Partly this is due to the fact that I haven’t been teaching medieval courses, so I’m often thinking about other things, but as I work on my Kalamazoo paper and other research of my own over the next little while I will no doubt have more to say.

In the meantime, may I suggest you get your medieval fix by reading Geoffrey Chaucer’s blog. It’s really quite well done. But the fun doesn’t stop there, as John Gower and Katherine Swynford also have blogs. (For my non-medieval readers, have a look at the Wikipedia entries on Geoffrey Chaucer, John Gower, and Katherine Swynford to see why this is all so funny.)

What I want to know is why it’s all these Middle English figures who have blogs. Why not the Anglo-Saxons like King Alfred or Ælfric or Wulfstan or Cynewulf…

Maybe you should “contact” one of them? It does seem only fair.
