Abstract

In this essay Ryan Perry employs a fragment of the Middle English Prose Brut, recently discovered in the Special Collections department of Queen’s University, Belfast, to discuss larger issues in respect of the diverse production methods which characterise the production of this text. As part of this process the essay investigates the origins of the unique textual interpolation contained in the Belfast Brut fragment, and through comparison with Dartmouth College, Rauner Special Collections Library, Codex MS 003183, the essay suggests some of the different approaches Brut producers took when tasked with ‘making history’.
