Synopsis: The first bibliography on Gawain poetry in the last 20 years to focus on all four poems. Contains 942 annotated entries, lengthy explanations on each poem, plus an informative introduction and index.
From the Publisher: "Thorough in scope, Blanch's guide cites scholarly editions and translations, criticisms, and reference and pedagogical works pertaining to the 'Gawain' corpus. It intends to supplement Malcolm Andrew's 'The Gawain Poet: An Annotated Bibliography, 1839-1977' (1979). Its 942 entries, arranged alphabetically by author, editor, translator, or compiler, supply complete bibliographical citations followed by annotations that provide a vast amount of information; indeed, the scholarship is painstakingly thorough and well organized. Particularly gratifying is the inclusion of dissertations with abstracts. Also welcome is retention of the original Anglo-Saxon, Old English, Old French, and Latin terms and phrases. Exhaustive indexes, by keyword, line, subject, and author, refer to entry numbers. A 33-page introduction outlines the current state of 'Gawain' and 'Pearl' criticism. All by themselves, the references in the introduction are worth the attention of serious 'Gawain! ' scholars. Recommended for scholars, researchers, upper-division undergraduates, and graduate students."--CHOICE
