9780195134926: Medieval English Literature (Oxford Anthology of English Literature)

Medieval English Literature is the first volume of the comprehensive Oxford Anthology of English Literature to be published in a second, expanded, and fully revised edition. It provides an authoritative and representative selection from the vast riches of Anglo-Saxon and Middle English literature of the period between AD 700 and AD 1500. The texts are presented either in full or in ample selections, helpfully and fully glossed and annotated according to the most recent scholarship. They are situated in their cultural context through general and particular introductions and through the carefully chosen illustrations, many of them new. Texts, annotations, introductions, and the bibliography have been thoroughly revised and brought up to date, and there is a full glossary of literary and historical terms.
Anglo-Saxon poetry appears in modern verse translation. In addition to the whole of Beowulf (Edwin Morgan's translation), elegies, The Dream of the Rood, and The Battle of Maldon, there is a sampling of wisdom literature and of biblical epic made with particular reference to the situation of women in Anglo-Saxon society. The generous choice of Chaucer's poetry, in a lightly modernized, glossed text, now includes, as well as the General Prologue and the tales of the Miller, the Nun's Priest, the Wife of Bath (with her Prologue), the Franklin, and the Pardoner, an extract from The Legend of Good Women, and others from the Scottish Chaucerians Henryson and Dunbar. For romance, the whole of the third book of Chaucer's Troilus and Criseyde and the entire text of Sir Orfeo, both glossed, have been added to Sir Gawain and the Green Knight (revised translation by Keith Harrison). The selections from Malory's Morte Darthur have been augmented, as have the translated extracts from The Visions of Piers Plowman (with the account of the Harrowing of Hell). Modernized versions of the Chester Play of Noah and the Seven Deadly Sins episode from The Castle of Perseverance join the Second Shepherds' Play and Everyman in the Theater section. Ballads and lyric poetry have also been changed and amplified to link with a notable innovation: the section entitled Women's Writing and Women's Experience, an introduction to Middle English prose written by and for women.

Descripción Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2002. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. This succinct and authoritative anthology of medieval English literature is the first volume of The Oxford Anthology of English Literature, Second Edition. Emphasizing texts that give students first-hand access to significant aspects of the Middle Ages, this collection reveals the vast riches of medieval literature in English, from Anglo-Saxon times to the fifteenth century. Significantly revised and expanded to reflect the contemporary canon, this new edition features editorial introductions based on the latest scholarly research; newly edited and annotated versions of many of the texts; a section on women s writing and experiences; new and better illustrations; and a longer and updated bibliography. Medieval English Literature, 2/e includes the complete texts of Beowulf (Edwin Morgan Translation) and Sir Gawain and the Green Knight (revised Keith Harrison translation). It provides a generous selection of Chaucer s work including General Prologue, Miller s Prologue and Tale, Nun s Priest s Tale, Wife of Bath s Prologue and Tale, Franklin s Prologue and Tale, Pardoner s Prologue and Tale, Thisbe, and Books I and II of Trolius and Criseyde. The volume also includes Sir Orfeo, a greatly improved selection of Anglo-Saxon poetry, and selections from Anglo-Saxon wisdom literature (including riddles and gnomic verses). All selections are printed either in their entirety or in substantial extracts, and the editors situate them in the historical, intellectual, and cultural milieu in which they were produced, recited, or written down. The texts are introduced and annotated in an instructive yet unobtrusive manner, promoting students understanding, evaluation, and enjoyment of them as literature. Medieval English Literature, 2/e is an exceptional text for courses in medieval English literature, old and middle English literature, and English literature 600-1500.
