A companion to fifteenth-century English poetry by Julia Boffey( )

14 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of seventeen original essays by leading authorities offers, for the first time, a comprehensive overview of the significant authors and important aspects of fifteenth-century English poetry. The major poets of the century, John Lydgate and Thomas Hoccleve, receive detailed analysis, alongside perhaps lesser-known authors: John Capgrave, Osbern Bokenham, Peter Idley, George Ashby and John Audelay. In addition, several essays examine genres and topics, including romance, popular, historical and scientific poetry, and translations from the classics. Other chapters investigate the crucial contexts for approaching poetry of this period: manuscript circulation, patronage and the influence of Chaucer
Manuscript and print in London, c.1475-1530 by Julia Boffey( )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What perceptions did people have of printed material after its introduction into England? How did these perceptions determine their own practices in dealing with books and documents, as producers and consumers? In Manuscript and Print in London c.1475-1530, Julia Boffey explores the evolving relationship of Londoners with handwritten manuscripts and printed material after William Caxton's establishment of a printing business at Westminster in 1476. Drawing from a wide range of surviving materials from the period, Boffey approaches textual production from the points of view of readers and writers, investigating the choices they made and shedding light on the different ways that both adapted to the availability of the new technology. Copiously illustrated with images from manuscripts and printed books, this volume will break new ground in the growing area of scholarship on print culture and the history of the book."--Publisher description
Medieval English literature by J. B Trapp( Book )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Medieval English Literature is the first volume of the comprehensive Oxford Anthology of English Literature to be published in a second, expanded, and fully revised edition. It provides an authoritative and representative selection from the vast riches of Anglo-Saxon and Middle English literature of the period between A.D. 700 and A.D. 1500." "The texts are presented either in full or in ample selections, helpfully and fully glossed and annotated according to the most recent scholarship. They are situated in their cultural context through general and particular introductions and through the carefully chosen illustrations, many of them new. Texts, annotations, introductions, and the bibliography have been thoroughly revised and brought up to date, and there is a full glossary of literary and historical terms."--Jacket
Manuscripts of English courtly love lyrics in the later Middle Ages by Julia Boffey( Book )

11 editions published between 1985 and 1986 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fifteenth-century English dream visions : an anthology( Book )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This anthology provides the student with new editions of five fifteenth-century English poems framed as dreams, and demonstrates the energy with which this influential medieval form was explored by post-Chaucerian writers." "Lydgate's Temple of Glass, a complex love vision, generates counsel of wide-ranging kind; The King's Quair of James I of Scotland, and Love's Renewal from the English poems of Charles of Orleans, manipulate autobiographical detail to philosophical and political ends; the anonymous Assembly of Ladies foregrounds women's voices; finally, Skelton's Bouge of Court adapts the love vision to the purposes of a satire on court life."

Middle English lyrics : new readings of short poems( )

7 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The body of short Middle English poems conventionally known as lyrics is characterized by wonderful variety. Taking many different forms, and covering an enormous number of subjects, these poems have proved at once attractive and challenging for modern readers and scholars. This collection of essays explores a range of Middle English lyrics from the thirteenth to the early sixteenth century, both religious and secular in flavour. It directs attention to the intrinsic qualities of these short poems and at the same time explores their capacity to illuminate important aspects of medieval cultural practice and production: forms of piety, contemporary conditions and events, the history of feelings and emotions, and the relationships of image, song, performance and speech to the written word. The issues covered in the essays include editing lyrics; lyric manuscripts; affect; visuality; mouvance and transformation; and the relationships between words, music and speech. A particularly distinctive feature of the collection is that most of the essays take as a point of departure a specific lyric whose particularities are explored within wider-ranging critical argument"--Back cover
