Summary: 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 A.D. 700 and A.D. 1500. The texts appear either in full or in ample selections, fully glossed and annotated according to the most recent scholarship. I ...show morentroductions to sections and texts and carefully chosen illustrations help to situate the works in their cultural context. In addition to a thoroughly revised and updated bibliography, this edition provides a full glossary of literary and historical terms.

In this second edition:

  • 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, 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 section on theater.

  • The lyrics section, which formerly contained only fourteenth-century works, now includes thirteenth-century poems that extend its representation of genre, its poetic range, and its emotional scope. The expansion enables this section to link with a notable innovation:

  • A new section entitled Women's Writing and Women's Experience, an introduction to Middle English prose written by and for women

Includes the complete texts of Beowolf, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, and Sir Orfeo
  • Provides a generous selection of Chaucer's work
  • Features a new section on women's writing and experience
  • Presents a greatly improved selection of Anglo-Saxon poetry (including Anglo-Saxon Old Testament poetry)
  • Adds selections from Anglo-Saxon wisdom literature (such as riddles and gnomic verses)
  • Incorporates 57 illustrations to complement the texts and a map of medieval England on the inside cover
  • Includes many newly edited and annotated texts
