Vis­i­ble Eng­lish: graph­ic cul­ture, scrib­al prac­tice, and iden­ti­ty, c. 700 – c. 1550
BuchcoverVis­i­ble Eng­lish recov­ers for the first time the expe­ri­ence of read­ing and writ­ing the Eng­lish lan­guage in the medieval peri­od through the per­spec­tives of lit­tera ped­a­gogy, the basis of medieval learn­ing and teach­ing of lit­er­ate skills in Latin. Lit­tera is at the heart of the set of the­o­ries and prac­tices that con­sti­tute the ‘graph­ic cul­ture’ of the book’s title. The book shows for the first time that lit­tera ped­a­gogy was an ‘us and them’ dis­course that func­tioned as a vehi­cle for iden­ti­ty for­ma­tion. Using lit­tera ped­a­gogy as a frame­work for under­stand­ing the medieval Eng­lish-lan­guage cor­pus from the point of view of the read­ers and writ­ers who pro­duced it, Vis­i­ble Eng­lish offers new insights on expe­ri­ences of writ­ing and read­ing Eng­lish in com­mu­ni­ties rang­ing from those first in con­tact with Latin lit­er­a­cy to those where print was an alter­na­tive to man­u­script. Dis­cussing a broad range of mate­ri­als from so-called ‘pen-tri­als’ and graf­fi­ti to key lit­er­ary man­u­scripts, Vis­i­ble Eng­lish pro­vides new per­spec­tives on the ways that the alpha­bet was under­stood, on gen­res such as alpha­bet poems, rid­dles, and scrib­al sig­na­tures, and on the dif­fer­ent ways in which scribes copied Old and Mid­dle Eng­lish texts. It argues that the graph­ic cul­ture under­pinned and trans­mit­ted by lit­tera ped­a­gogy pro­vid­ed frame­works for the devel­op­ment and under­stand­ing of Eng­lish-lan­guage lit­er­a­cy prac­tices and new ways of expe­ri­enc­ing social belong­ing and dif­fer­ence. To be lit­er­ate in Eng­lish, it pro­pos­es, was to inhab­it iden­ti­ties marked by Anglo­phone lit­er­ate prac­tices.
