Selections include excerpts from such tales as "Sir Gawayne and the Grene Knight" and the"Gest Hystoriale of the destruction of Troy," the immortal "Piers Plowman," John Wycliffe's translation of the Bible, political commentaries, and poetry. In addition to notes on each selection and an informative appendix, this volume features an extensive glossary by J. R. R. Tolkien.
