Format: Paperback
An excellent source-book for anyone studying Middle English. It compiles an extensive selection of excerpts which demonstrate the ways in which medieval English writers struggled with the concept of writing in English, and defended their use of the vernacular. The accompanying essays range from excellent to mediocre, but the texts themselves make the book worth buying. By compiling texts about medieval literary theory, this book begins to fill a major gap in medieval studies.

Great study March 29 2015

Not light reading, but just what l had hoped for to fill in for a course that was not given many years ago. A great survey (and no exam to worry about.)
