This volume comprises selected papers from a Tristan symposium held at the Institute of Germanic Studies in London. The symposium was conceived by the organizers as an experiment in transatlantic dialogue and the papers represent the views of scholars from a variety of North American and British universities. The main focus of attention is Gottfried's Tristan. Familiar assumptions about the text are questioned and fresh perspectives are offered on many contentious issues: those disagreements which persist are themselves a reflection posed by Gottfried's masterpiece. In addition, new light is thrown on the treatment of the Tristan theme in medieval and modern times. Contributors include: Michael Curschmann, W.J. Mccann, Margaret Brown, C. Stephen Jaeger, M.H. Jones, Adrian Stevens, Arthur Groos, Thomas Kerth, Michael Batts, Marianne Wynn, Janet Wharton, George Gillespie, Joan M. Ferrante, Leslie Seiffert, Sidney M. Johnson, Petrus W. Tax, August Closs, H.B. Willson, and, Roy Wisbey.
