Middle English legends of women saints by Sherry L Reames( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Middle English Legends of Women Saints presents a collection of saints' Lives intended to suggest the diversity of possibilities beneath the supposedly fixed and predictable surfaces of the legends, using multiple retellings of the same legend to illustrate that medieval readers and listeners did not just passively receive saints' legends but continually and actively appropriated them. The collection opens with legends about two royal (or supposedly royal) women, Frideswide and Mary Magdelen, and continues with those of three popular virgin martyrs, Margaret of Antioch, Christina of Tyre, and Katherine of Alexandria. The final portion of the collection is devoted to St. Anne, mother of the Virgin Mary. The collection includes a number of relatively unknown texts that have not appeared in print since Horstmann's transcriptions in the nineteenth century and a few that have never before been published. --

The Chaucerian apocrypha : a selection by Kathleen Forni( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The poems in this volume were prized and preserved because of their association with Chaucer's name and have been, paradoxically, almost entirely ignored by modern readers for the same reason. ... [M]any of these pieces are worthy of study, not only in the context of Chaucerian reception, but also as specimens of the kinds of vernacular poetry that circulated in late medieval manuscripts and which remained in print, largely by the accidental virtue of their association with Chaucer, throughout the Renaissance and well into the nineteenth century. The various genres represented in this sampler--the dream vision, good counsel, female panegyric, mass parody, proverbial wisdom, lover's dialogue, prophecy, advice to princes, elegiac complaint, courtly parody, and anti-feminist satire--attest to the diversity of late medieval literary tastes and to the flexibility of the courtly idiom. ... [I]n the sixteenth century both Chaucer's poetry and the diverse works with which it circulated appear to have continued to have been valued for their perceived courtly qualities. ... Chaucer's early scribal and print editors also appear to have prized his sphere of influence (attested to by imitation, continuation, and emendation) and his adaptability to contemporary social and political needs. --from the Introduction
