Shakespeare and the Medieval Romance

Professor Cooper’s lecture “Shakespeare and the Medieval Romance” is extraordinarily informative, with the genius of appearing obvious once you’ve heard it. But all other discussion of Shakespeare’s sources I’ve encountered spends too much time on his more elevated sources, his little Latin and less Greek, or the histories he used and abused (with, by the way, a discreditable hushing up of the latter). This lecture explains what should have been obvious, the strong influence of popular English literature on Shakespeare.
