Dr Joan Mahiques-Climent is awarded a grant from the local government of Valencia

Dr Joan Mahiques-Climent, from the Universitat Jaume I, has been working at the Centre for Catalan Studies with Professor John London. Dr Mahiques-Climent has been awarded a grant from the local government of Valencia for his stay and his research project is focused on the representation of the Castle of Love in chapters LIII-LV of Tirant lo Blanc. These chapters describe some of the festivities for the king of England’s wedding with the princess of France. One of the aims of this research is to determine whether there is a relationship of dependence between this passage and the English literary tradition of the same period.
