21 editions published between 1990 and 2006 in English and Polish and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Piers Plowman by William Langland( )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 23 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.

Anglo-Latin and its Heritage : Essays in Honour of A.G. Rigg on his 64th birthday( )

2 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For some 40 years, A.G. Rigg has been defining the field of later Anglo-Latin literary scholarship, a task culminating in his History of Anglo-Latin Literature 1066-1422. Anglo-Latin and its Heritage is a collection of thirteen essays by his colleagues and students, past and present, which pays tribute to him both by exploring the field he has defined, and by making forays into its antecedents and descendants. The first section, "Roots and Debts," includes essays on the migration of classical and late antique motifs and patterns of thought into early medieval Latin, and concludes with an essay which shows how a 12th-century writer reached back into that earlier period for stylistic models. The central section of the book, "Anglo-Latin Literature 1066-1422," concentrates on Anglo-Latin writers of the period most studied by Rigg himself, and the seven essays in this section include analyses of poetic style and borrowing; discussions of patterns of reading; and essays which read Anglo-Latin works through their specific historical and cultural contexts. Two of the essays are elegant translations of significant Anglo-Latin poetic works. The final section of the book, "Influence and Survival," offers three essays which consider Anglo-Latin literature in the late medieval and post-medieval world, from an edition of a Latin source for a late Middle English saint's life; through an account of the migration of Latin texts into the royal libraries of Henry VIII; to the concluding essay, which explores a "mechanical" means of producing perfect Latin hexameter. A complete bibliography of Rigg's works closes the volume. The chronological and methodological range of the essays in this collection is offered as a fitting tribute to one of Anglo-Latin's most learned and indefatigable scholars
