This selection of literary texts ranges from the earliest writings in the vernacular up to the time of Chaucer. Spanning almost seven centuries, it encapsulates the foundation and consolidation of literature written in English. Works included are those considered essential for anyone with an interest in early medieval English literature. The texts are arranged broadly by date of manuscript, demonstrating to readers the range of literary writing produced during this time-span. No division has been made between Old and Middle English, allowing readers to view the earlier medieval period as a whole, and to make connections between genres and themes across the centuries. A general introduction gives an outline of the key works and the historical context in which they were written. Full translations are offered for all the Old and earlier Middle English material, along with marginal glosses for the later texts, making them accessible to those who are not language specialists. Explanatory notes and bibliographical information are included for study purposes.Biografía del autor:
