In this paper, I present some of my most intriguing detective cases from the period of my CIH Fellowship and some solutions. In the description of Sir Gawain's antagonist in the Middle English Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, two colour words are used that are of uncertain meaning, "fade" and "enker." I spent my Humanities Institute Fellowship investigating the language used in this poem and the three other poems that exist in the same 14th century manuscript, PearlCleanness, and Patience, none of which is known in another copy.

Date & Time:
March 1, 2018 | 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
