Editorial: Boydell & Brewer Ltd
Año de publicación: 2008
Condición del libro: Brand new
Edición: 1st Edition
Walter Kennedy is best known as William Dunbar's feisty opponent in their celebrated Flyting , but his poetic talents, praised by such famous near-contemporaries as Gavin Douglas and David Lyndsay, extend far beyond this, r anging from short bawdy lyric to sustained devotional meditation. This first complete edition of all his surviving poetry offers parallel-text versions of all the textual witnesses for each poem, a full set of textual and explanat ory notes, a substantial glossary, and appendices. An extensive introduction provides biographical information, and sets the text in its cultural and intellectual context. The book is thus both an invitation to Kennedy's poetry - the only extant medieval poetry from the west of Scotland - and a tribute to a significant poetic voice of the late middle ages.
