For over a hundred years there has been no comprehensive history of later medieval Anglo-Latin literature (which constitutes an astonishing nine-tenths of English literary activity in the period). The century and a half since the last major work on this subject have seen the discovery and editing of many important texts. The view is commonly held that English literary culture declined after the Norman Conquest and revived only in the fourteenth century in the work of writers such as Chaucer; this view ignores the flourishing tradition of Latin literature written between England's enforced entry into the European mainstream and the rise of the vernacular and humanism. A.G. Rigg's new history reveals a very rich corpus of writings, comprising epic, lyric, comedy, satire, prose anecdote, romance, saints' lives and devotional texts. Authors such as Geoffrey of Monmouth, John of Salisbury, Gerald of Wales and John Gower are now presented in the context of the host of other Anglo-Latin writings, both major and minor. This chronological history gives quotations in the original Latin with English translations in verse or prose; Anglo-Latin metres are explained and exemplified in an Appendix

12 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Breaking new ground in interdisciplinary scholarship of late medieval England, this collection of essays celebrates and addresses the work of renowned medieval scholar A.G. Rigg. George Rigg's interests span medieval Latin, Anglo-Norman, and Middle English literature and philology; the contributors to this volume are an international group of colleagues, students, and friends of Rigg's, whose essays are as wide-ranging as Rigg's own interests. The contributions include: new editions of Middle English texts; an overview of the editions of Chaucer from the nineteenth century to the present which expounds editorial trends through the years; studies of major Middle English writings which cross boundaries into social history and the history of the book; a codicological study of the literary and material evidence for the use of scientific and utilitarian texts in late medieval English manuscripts; and related historical studies. Each essay is anchored in the textual realities that grounded Rigg's own scholarship, and bridge the boundaries between traditional academic disciplines ? a crossing of interstices in homage to a teacher, friend, and colleague

Piers Plowman by William Langland( )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"William Langland's Piers Plowman is one of the major poetic monuments of medieval England and of world literature. Probably composed between 1372 and 1389, the poem survives in three distinct versions. It is known to modern readers largely through the middle of the three, the so-called B-text. Now, George Economou's verse translation of the poet's third version makes available for the first time in modern English the final revision of a work that many have regarded as the greatest Christian poem in our language." "With its formal singularity, epic-scale vision, and enormous richness of content, this allegorical poem of the late fourteenth century has seized the imagination and interest of a growing and appreciative audience in the twentieth. Langland's remarkable powers of invention and his passionate involvement with the spiritual, social, and political crises of his time lay claim to our attention, and demand serious comparison with Dante's Divine Comedy. Economou's translation preserves the intensity of the poet's verse and the narrative energy of his alliterative long line, the immediacy of the original's story of the quest for salvation, and the individuality of its language and wordplay.
