The Sinful Knights


Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses a critical account of the poem Guy of Warwick, which affords a practical demonstration of the techniques employed by its author in its creation. The poem, which exhibits all the stylistic and structural differences, led Deiter Mehl to very sensibly classify romances by their length as much as by their content. One reason for the poem's popularity is its multiplicity of adventures rather than any literary merit.

Keywords:   poem, Guy of Warwick, techniques, style, structure, Deiter Mehl, romances
