ell-holton-tottelMy main research interests are in Chaucer, the medieval and early Renaissance love lyric, and poetics, with an emphasis on the way form generates meaning. For a full list of my publications, please see Amanda Holton Publications

I recently co-edited an Edition of Tottel's Miscellany:,,9780141933788,00.html

I also produced The Sources of Chaucer's Poetics (Ashgate, 2008).

ell-holton-chaucers-poeticsReviews for this publication include: 'a very good and very useful book' (John M. Ganim, The Medieval Review) and 'this book has something fresh to report, and of how many new books on Chaucer can that be said?' (B. A. Windeatt, Notes and Queries).

I am currently working on a monograph on the role of rhyme in late medieval and early Renaissance love lyric. More on my research can be found at Amanda Holton Research

I am a recognised practioner of the Higher Education Academy, and have taught at several UK universities across a wide range of subjects including Old and Middle English literature, Renaissance literature, and the English language. Please see Amanda Holton Teaching for details of my teaching this year.
