The primary focus of Stephen Shepherd's research is on the critical, codicological, and historical contexts of medieval English literature, especially romance and the work of William Langland. He has published essays on these topics in collections and in Archiv and Medium Ævum. His honors include fellowships to the Huntington Library and the Bibliographical Society of America. He is the editor of the Early English Text Society edition of Turpines Story (Oxford University Press, 2004), and he has published three Norton Critical Editions: Middle English Romances (1995), Sir Thomas Malory's Le Morte Darthur (2004), and, with Elizabeth Robertson, William Langland's Piers Plowman (2006).
