Understanding style : practical ways to improve your writing by Joseph Glaser( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An ideal text for courses in advanced composition. Understanding Style uncovers some of the inherent mystery of style and explains how to craft good sentences and combine them into writing that is clear and readable. While similar books often fail to address the relationship between written style and spoken voices or to discuss the ways that writers control rhythm and emphasis precisely the kind of issues that give style its reputation as a difficult topic - this unique book adapts the findings of modern linguistic research into detailed writing advice seldom found elsewhere."--BOOK JACKET

Troilus and Criseyde in Modern Verse by Geoffrey Chaucer( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fast-moving Modern English version of Chaucer's greatest tragic romance highlights the poem's rapid shifts in register and diction as well as its subtle and elusive characterizations, while preserving the enchanting rhyme-royal stanza of the Middle English original. Christine Chism's Introduction illuminates the work's historical context, poetic devices, first audiences, sources and non-traditional re-conception of a traditional female protagonist "whose faults", as Criseyde says, "are rolled on every tongue."
Sir Gawain and the Green Knight( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ad Putter, Professor of Medieval English Literature, University of Bristol. "Accurate, poetic, and masterly, Joseph Glaser's translation of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight captures and replicates with brio the craftsmanship of the English romancer known as the Gawain -poet.

Caxton's Malory by Thomas Malory( )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This brisk retelling of Le Morte D'Arthur highlights the narrative drive, humor, and poignancy of Sir Thomas Malory's original while updating his fifteenth-century English and selectively pruning over-elaborate passages that can try the patience of modern readers. The result is an adaptation that readers can enjoy as a fresh approach to Malory's sprawling masterpiece. The book's most famous episodes--the sword in the stone, the cataclysmic final battle--are all here, while lesser-known key episodes stand forth with new brightness and clarity. The text is accompanied by a

The Canterbury tales in modern verse by Geoffrey Chaucer( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Readers of this witty and fluent new translation of The Canterbury Tales should find themselves turning page after page: by recasting Chaucer's ten-syllable couplets into eight-syllable lines, Joseph Glaser achieves a lighter, more rapid cadence than other translators, a four-beat rhythm well-established in the English poetic tradition up to Chaucer's time. Glaser's shortened lines make compelling reading and mirror the elegance and variety of Chaucer's verse to a degree rarely met by translations that copy Chaucer beat for beat. Moreover, this translation's full, Chaucerian range of diction--f
