He established models for much of the vernacular poetry written subsequently and was instrumental in institutionalizing the lay reader. His most important work, the Voir dit, calls attention to the coexistene of public and private reading practices through its intensely hybrid form. McGrady uses Machaut's corpus as a case study to explore the impact of lay literacy on the culture of late medieval Europe. ; Studies in Book and Print Culture; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 310 pages
