Troilus and Criseyde by Geoffrey Chaucer( Book )

70 editions published between 1982 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 1,698 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The three Oxford Guides to Chaucer are written by scholars of international repute, with the purpose of summarizing what is known about his works and offering interpretations based on recent advances in both historical knowledge and theoretical understanding. Barry Windeatt's volume on Troilus and Criseyde examines the poem that is Chaucer's most ambitious single achievement, his masterpiece, and one of the very finest narrative poems in the English language. The story of love fulfilled and trust betrayed - of how Troilus and Criseyde discover love, and how she abandons him for Diomede after her departure from Troy - is presented by Chaucer with profound insight into human character and explored through its philosophical and spiritual dimensions. This Oxford Guide is the most comprehensive introduction to Troilus and Criseyde yet produced. It includes the fullest and most convenient account of Chaucer's imaginative use of his sources, the first extended analysis of the poem's originality of genre, and a readable commentary on all aspects of the work, its structure, themes, characterization, and style. It also contains a survey of literary responses to Troilus in the three centuries following Chaucer's death. The Guide combines the informative substance of a reference book with the coherence of a critical reading, and is set to establish itself as a standard work on Troilus and Criseyde

Derek Brewer (1923-2008) was one of the most influential medievalists of the twentieth century, first through his own publications and teaching, and later as a pioneer in academic publishing. Essays in this collection take their starting point from his ideas and interests, before offering their own fresh thinking in those key areas of medieval studies in which he pioneered innovations which remain central, from Chaucer's knight and knightly virtues to the wholeness of Malory's 'Morte Darthur'
Revelations of divine love by Julian( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An account of the sixteen visions which appeared to Mother Julian (1342-1416), a recluse who lived at Norwich in the fourtenth century, together with her meditations on these mystical experiences. Julian of Norwich writes in a lively and unpretentious manner and her theology is precise without ever being pedantic: above all, she has a gift for expressing profound thoughts in the simplest language. In the pages of her mystical treatise the voice of the Middle Ages sounds with a clarity difficult to parallel among the writers of the period

Traditions and innovations in the study of Middle English literature : the influence of Derek Brewer( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Derek Brewer (1923-2008) was one of the most influential medievalists of the twentieth century, first through his own publications and teaching, and later as the founder of his own academic publishing firm. His working life of some sixty years, from the late 1940s to the 2000s, saw enormous advances in the study of Chaucer and of Arthurian romance, and of medieval literature more generally. He was in the forefront of such changes, and his understandings of Chaucer and of Malory remain at the core of the modern critical mainstream. Essays in this collection take their starting point from his ideas and interests, before offering their own fresh thinking in those key areas of medieval studies in which he pioneered innovations which remain central: Chaucer's knight and knightly virtues; class-distinction; narrators and narrative time; lovers and loving in medieval romance; ideals of feminine beauty; love, friendship and masculinities; medieval laughter; symbolic stories, the nature of romance, and the ends of storytelling; the wholeness of Malory's Morte Darthur; modern study of the medieval material book; Chaucer's poetic language and modern dictionaries; and Chaucerian afterlives. This collection builds towards an intellectual profile of a modern medievalist, cumulatively registering how the potential of Derek Brewer's work is being reinterpreted and is renewing itself now and into the future of medieval studies"--Provided by publisher

Julian of Norwich. Revelations of divine love( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Julian of Norwich (1342-c.1416) is the earliest author writing in English who can be identified as a woman. She is also esteemed as one of the subtlest writers and profoundest thinkers of the period for her account of the revelations that she experienced in 1373. This edition presents both the shorter and longer versions of her book about her revelations, setting them in parallel for ease of comparison, with comprehensive explanatory and textual commentaries, and also with a glossary. Barry Windeatt provides a text that is likely to be closest to Julian's own language. A substantial introduction provides up-to-date information about Julian's circumstances, Julian's Norwich, her revelations, the relationship between her two texts, the theological background to her principal themes (including Christ as our mother), and a survey of the reception history of her work up to the present. A textual introduction and full apparatus guide the reader through the complex textual issues behind Julian's writing

Troilus and Criseyde by Geoffrey Chaucer( Recording )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The tragedy of Troilus and Criseyde is one of the greatest narrative poems in English literature. Set during the siege of Troy, it tells how the young knight Troilus, son of King Priam, falls in love with Criseyde, a beautiful widow. brought together by criseyde's uncle, Pandarus, the lovers are then forced apart by the events of war, which test their oaths of fidelity and trust to their limits. The first work in English to depict human passion with such sympathy and understanding, [the story] is Chaucer's supreme evocation of the joy and grief inherent in love. In [the] critical introduction to this original-spelling edition, [the editor] discusses the traditions, sources and interpretations of Troilus and Criseyde.-Back cover
