"The focus of this bibliography is on studies of individual Middle English words and groups of words which offer evidence for word meanings: ante- and post datings for the Oxford English Dictionary and the Middle English Dictionary, missing entries and ghost words, possible proverbs, proposals for etymologies, wordplay, punning, new readings in manuscripts and the reinterpretations of textual cruxes. The articles, essays and selected monographs surveyed were mostly published between 1950 and the late 1990s." "The bibliography is arranged alphabetically by author's name and date of publication, together with brief annotations designed to give a flavour of the discussions. There are also indexes of words and authors."--Jacket

Reading La3amon's Brut : approaches and explorations by Rosamund Allen( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For Layamon, or Lawman (both forms are used), a parish priest living on the Welsh March c.1200, the criteria of language, race and territory all provided ways of defining the nation state, which is why his Brut commands a diverse readership to-day. The range of view-points in this book reflects the breadth and complexity of Layamon's own vision of the way his world is moulded by past conquests and racial tensions. The Brut is an open-ended narrative of Britain, its peoples, and its place-names as they changed under new rulers, and tells, for the first time in English, the rise and fall of Arthur, highlighting his role in the unfolding history of Britain. Beginning with its legendary founder, Brutus, the story is imagined anew, and although it concludes with an Anglo-Saxon kingdom, Layamon's closing words remind us that changes will come: " i-wurðe þet iwurðe: i-wurðe Godes wille. Amen." This book offers detailed discussion and new perspectives
