"William Langland's Piers Plowman is one of the major poetic monuments of medieval England and of world literature. Probably composed between 1372 and 1389, the poem survives in three distinct versions. It is known to modern readers largely through the middle of the three, the so-called B-text. Now, George Economou's verse translation of the poet's third version makes available for the first time in modern English the final revision of a work that many have regarded as the greatest Christian poem in our language." "With its formal singularity, epic-scale vision, and enormous richness of content, this allegorical poem of the late fourteenth century has seized the imagination and interest of a growing and appreciative audience in the twentieth. Langland's remarkable powers of invention and his passionate involvement with the spiritual, social, and political crises of his time lay claim to our attention, and demand serious comparison with Dante's Divine Comedy. Economou's translation preserves the intensity of the poet's verse and the narrative energy of his alliterative long line, the immediacy of the original's story of the quest for salvation, and the individuality of its language and wordplay.

Troilus and Criseyde by Geoffrey Chaucer( Book )

5 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Troilus and Criseyde, one of the most beautiful and one of the longest of Chaucer's poems, was written between the years 1379 and 1383, when the author was in his early forties. Derived principally from Giovanni Boccaccio's Il Filostrato and the Historia Troiae of Guido delle Colonne, it containes exquitse translations from Petrarch and Dante. Numerous editions have appeared since that of Thomas Thynne in 1532, and the poem now takes its rightful place in Everyman's Library for the first time. Thie new edition has been prepared by Mr John Warrington from the celebrated Campsall Manuscript, which was made for King Henry V when he was Prince of Wales; and where the reading is doubtful or obviously corrupt, recourse has been had to other manuscript sources and the emendations of former editors. The spelling has been very slightly modernized; but in no case have the words, metre or sound of the original been altered. In order to overcome the remaining difficulties, arising from the unfamiliar vocabulary and syntax of Middle English, words and shorter phrases are 'translated' in the margin; longer paraphrases are given in footnotes. The reader is thus spared the necessity of constant reference to glossaries and notes at the end of the volume. (Inside cover)
