Abstract:This dissertation, "In another kynde": Modes of Recognition in Late Medieval English Literature, seeks to revive and broaden our interest in the topos of recognition and suggest its cultural importance. Scenes of recognition play an important role in narratives that explore identity and subjectivity; this project addresses the reformulation of this particular kind of cognition in the literature of the late medieval period and suggests how an interdisciplinary consideration of its importance may enrich discussions of medieval identity, selfhood, and agency. Various medieval authors, including Chaucer, Robert Henryson, and the poets of the Alliterative Revival, sort and assess discursive formulations of recognition drawn from philosophy, political theory, and crusade discourse through their deployment of genre, or what the late Middle Ages termed genus or kind. Each chapter of this dissertation treats a different literary genre's representation of recognition in the form of a carefully historicized case study. The first chapter discusses the historical romance, represented by Chaucer's Knight's Tale, Troilus and Criseyde, and Henryson's Testament of Cresseid, and shows how these romances engage with philosophical speculation on recognition in order to question notions regarding the limits of human knowledge about another person. The second chapter investigates the chivalric romance, exemplified by the anonymous Alliterative Morte Arthure, and reveals its sophisticated engagement with political theory on sovereignty in its scenes of recognition. The third chapter treats the homiletic romance, illustrated by the anonymous Sir Isumbras, and its examination of the role and proper recognition of the crusader in relation to fourteenth-century English crusade discourse. In general, "In another kynde" revises what we think Aristotle tells us about recognition and fleshes out our sense of how the topos of recognition can portray the mechanisms that sustain political, religious, or personal identity in new ways.
