Companion to Chaucer studies by Beryl Rowland( Book )

43 editions published between 1958 and 1979 in English and held by 2,326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Companion to Chaucer Studies arose out of present necessity: it has been devised to assist students when they confront the formidable mass of Chaucerian scholarship, and, in particular, to give those who have small library facilities some idea of the critical background which seems essential for an appreciation of Chaucer's poetry at any but a superficial level. It may also, perhaps, prove stimulating and useful to those already familiar with Chaucerian scholarship. - Preface
Animals with human faces : a guide to animal symbolism by Beryl Rowland( Book )

34 editions published between 1973 and 1975 in English and held by 1,172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why was ermine the fur used to decorate the robes of State? What lies behind such popular expressions as "wolf-whistle" and a "snake-in-the-grass"? Why are nightclub waitresses called bunnygirls? In "Animals with Human Faces", Beryl Rowland provides answers -- some whimsical, some erudite -- to these and many other questions relating to the animal as symbol. Professor Rowland here discusses the fascinating symbolical and allegorical meanings of forty-seven animals form earliest times to the present. Over fifty illustrations, gathered largely from medieval manuscripts, add a delightful dimension to the study. Professor Rowland shows why certain qualities came to be associated with animals, and how these qualities were stereotyped over the centuries by their use in art, literature, and folklore. In doing so, she provides a key to animal symbolism as encountered in the works of novelists, poets, artists, dramatists, film-makers, and advertisers; her emphases throughout is on current usage. Arranged alphabetically, "Animals with Human Faces" makes an engaging study. -- From publisher's description

Richard II by William Shakespeare( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written in 1595, "Richard II" occupies a significant place in the Shakespeare canon. It marks the transition from the earlier history plays dominated by civil war and stark power to a more nuanced representation of the political conflicts of England's past where character and politics are inextricably intertwined. Deftly combining history with tragedy, its tale of bad government and usurpation had great political immediacy for its first audiences in late Elizabethan England and continues to resonate today. This scholarly but student-friendly edition features a freshly edited version of the text based on the early quartos and first Folio of 1623. The thorough set of textual notes and full commentary are designed to aid the modern reader to better understand and appreciate the language, the characters, and the dramatic action
