Ford, John C.

Land Tenure in The "Tale of Gamelyn."

Medium Aevum 89 (2020): 23-49.

Presents an understanding of the rules of law, chivalry, and inheritance in "The Tale of Gamelyn." Demonstrates how these rules account for its apparent narrative (and, by extension, aesthetic) inconsistencies by showing how a knowledge of inheritance laws and entailments reveals the possessions and actions of the brothers in the tale.
