'the right balance of translations and glosses further combine to achieve the editors' overall aim - "to provide students with a first experience of the vast riches of medieval literature in English"' Michael J. Huxtable, Medium Aevum, LXX 11
This anthology has a very well rounded collection of medieval english (middle english) texts. The Cantebury Tales are of course included as well as other fiction, drama, and poetry. Sir Gawain in the Green Knight is a must read for all Middle English fans or beginners in studying the language and candence of that time. Very impressed.
