              This book is the first scholarship to map in detail the shape, origins, and rhetorical function of a narrative form authors in the medieval period learned from Augustine's two great histories: the personal Confessions and the political and ecclesiastical City of God. The form's s...imple and flexible shape - prospect, fulfillment, interpretive retrospect - derives from Augustine's Christian exegetical practice. Because its meaning resides in retrospective and open interpretation of a climactic center, the form emerges as a consolatory narrative alternative to the closures of Boethius's Consolation of Philosophy in key medieval texts manifesting personal, political, and ecclesiastical crisis: Peter Abelard's History of My Calamities, William Langland's Piers Plowman, the anonymous Stanzaic Morte, Geoffrey Chaucer's Knight's Tale, and Thomas More's Dialogue of Comfort against Tribulation. --
