The literature of the Middle Ages by W. T. H Jackson( Book )

45 editions published between 1960 and 1986 in English and German and held by 1,857 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This intelligently conceived, clearly organized, and well-written account of the least-understood European literary era is much more than merely a history or a simple guidebook; it is a richly illustrated and amply documented synthesis of the backgrounds, attitudes, types, stylistic devices, purposes, and motifs of medieval literature. The concentration is upon the literature of the High Middle Ages, that is, the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. It was during this period that the works of the greatest literary excellence were written and that literature was most characteristically medieval. Literary works [are treated] by genres rather than by nationality or chronology. Obviously designed with a scholarly reader in mind, the book is, however, neither pedantic nor particularly difficult

Essential works of Erasmus by Desiderius Erasmus( Book )

7 editions published between 1965 and 1967 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erasmus, a true child of the Renaissance, wrote with a brilliance seldom equalled in the history of letters. His withering catalogue of human follies and vanities is still just as timely as it was over four centuries ago. A master stylist, famed for his elegant prose, he was also a great humanist, who believed in the ultimate triumph of reason over stupidity and prejudice. His most favous work, "The Praise of folly", is a dazzling disply of his supreme gift for irony, parody and satire. His "Colloquies" are a witty and far-ranging demonstration not only of Erasmus' own ideas on crucial questions, but of the basic thinking of his time. His "Letters" offer a fascinating personal view of such famous Renaissance figures as Sir Thomas More, Thomas Wolsey, Pope Leo X, and Martin Luther

Lancelot, or, The knight of the cart = Le chevalier de la charrete by Chrétien( Book )

3 editions published between 1982 and 1984 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This poem was the first to introduce Lancelot as an important figure in the King Arthur legend. Lancelot tells of the adulterous relationship between the knight and his mistress, Guinevere, the wife of King Arthur. Thematically this poem differs from Chretien's other romances - Lancelot and Guinevere's love is a serious crime against their king, Lancelot casts aside his knightly ideals and reputation for the sake of his beloved, and Arthur is endowed with a weaker personality
