Excerpt from Gower Selections From the Confessio Amantis

In the present editor's complete edition of the Confessio Amantis some modifications have been admitted for the convenience of modern readers, but in the present text the student will find some five or six thousand lines of this very excellent manuscript exactly reproduced, and the editor hopes that this may be regarded as a matter of some general interest. The text of this book, it may be added, is the result of a quite independent collation of the manuscript, and a few very trifling errors (chiefly cases of 'y' for 'i'), which had escaped notice in the larger edition, have been discovered and corrected here.

In the Introduction some account is given of the author and of his literary work, and a short summary of the Confessio Amantis is added. The account of the language and metre is founded upon that which is given in the larger edition, but with much abridgement. The Notes of this book, on the other hand, are considerably more extensive than those of the complete edition, being intended for younger students. The Glossary, it is hoped, will supply all that is necessary in addition for the full understanding of the text.
