Georgia Henley and A. Joseph McMullen (eds). Gerald of Wales: New Perspectives on a Medieval Writer and Critic. Cardiff: University of Wales Press, 2018. This is the first comprehensive assessment of the work of the twelfth-century historian Gerald of Wales, presented as a series of fifteen focused essays by leading scholars and specialists. From the manuscript tradition of Gerald’s work to his reception in Wales, Ireland, and Tudor England, the essays consider Gerald’s major works, including his Journey Through Wales and Description of Wales, from perspectives such as local history, genealogy, style, religion, national identity, and humour.
