The Piers Plowman glossary : Will's visions of Piers Plowman, Do-Well, Do-Better and Do-Best : a glossary of the English vocabulary of the A, B, and C versions as presented in the Athlone editions by George Kane( )

11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first of its kind since Sir Walter Skeat's pioneering Glossarial Index of 1886, this glossary takes full account of the intervening advances in both Middle English lexicography and Piers Plowman scholarship. Each definition is supported by reference to instances in each of the forms where the word occurs. Where this applies they were chosen with an eye to the dialectal and morphological differences in the three texts, and to the rhetorically sophisticated grammar of the poet's style. The glossary, moreover, gives full attention to the remoteness of many elements in the poem's content from modern culture and its values."--Jacket

Piers Plowman: the evidence for authorship by George Kane( Book )

26 editions published between 1965 and 2014 in English and held by 642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The major edition of the three versions of Piers Plowman which the Athlone Press is in the process of publishing and of which Professor Kane is the general editor was not planned to include discussion of the authorship of the poem. The editors were agreed at the outset in believing that no real case for multiple authorship had been established in the course of the debate initiated by J.M. Manley in 1906, and they felt that a majority of Middle English scholars would support this view. They were satisfied that the hypothesis of single authorship was the best hypothesis to account for all aspec
Middle English literature : a critical study of the romances, the religious lyrics, Piers Plowman by George Kane( Book )

42 editions published between 1951 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally published in 1951 Middle English Literature applies methods of literary evaluation to certain Middle English works. Arguing that previous literary criticism has largely focused on the commentary of their historical, social, philological and religious content, the book suggests that it has led to a thinking that Middle English literature is without artistic value and therefore cannot be compared effectively with later works of the fourteenth and fifteenth century. While traditional analysis has been beneficial to scientific and historical findings, this text seeks to look deeper into the artistic merits of the works and the authors that wrote them, arguing that the authors of these Middle English texts, wrote with the same motivations and experiences of these later authors which in turn informed the artistic basis of these Middle English works. The book looks at Middle English texts through three main areas: the Metrical Romances, the Religious Lyrics and Piers Plowman

"Donaldson--one of the century's most distinguished medieval scholars--began his career working on Piers and continued studying it all his life. His translation not only skillfully reproduces the alliterative verse of the original, but also reanimates the poem in all its mercurial changes: lyrical, mystical, satirical--and funny. Elizabeth Kirk and Judith Anderson have supplied helpful notes and glossary, and an introduction. Both the translation and the apparatus open up the poem's world for every reader"--Back cover
