Book Description:

This essential book introduces readers to the wide range of literature written in England between 1150 and 1400. It opens with an introduction designed to enable the reader to understand the representative pieces of Middle English literature that follow. It describes the language as it was used in different parts of the country, shows how it evolved over this period, and offers guidance on pronunciation, grammar, meter, and vocabulary. The third edition of A Book of Middle English has been extensively enhanced. The authors have revised key works in light of new editions, updated bibliographic entries, and added two new texts. Taken as a whole, the book is the ideal overview of Middle English language and literature.
