In this "magnificent book" (T. S. Eliot), Ernst Robert Curtius (1886-1956), one of the foremost literary scholars of this century, examines the continuity of European literature from Homer to Goethe, with particular emphasis on the Latin Middle Ages. In an extensive new epilogue, drawing on hitherto unpublished material, Peter Godman analyzes the intellectual and political context and character of Curtius's ideas.

"Curtius's book, despite its age, remains vital for anyone interested in the fate of the classics in Western Europe. European Literature and the Latin Middle Ages is at once a great resource and a model of how to think about literature and tradition. It is wonderful to have it readily available again."--Anthony Grafton, Princeton UniversityAbout the Author:
