History of Anglo-Latin Literature, 1066-1422 by A. G. Rigg
Book DescriptionA comprehensive history of medieval Anglo-Latin writings (which represent an astonishing nine tenths of English literary culture in the period). The past century since the last major work on this subject has seen the discovery and editing of many important texts. A. G. Rigg's new authoritative reference work underlines how the view of England's literary history in the Middle Ages as a decline from Anglo-Saxon culture (recuperated only in the fourteenth century in the work of writers such as Chaucer) ignores the flourishing tradition of Latin literature written between England's enforced entry into the European mainstream and the rise of the vernacular and of humanism. It reveals a very rich corpus of writings, comprising epic, lyric, comedy, satire, prose anecdotes, romance, saints' lives and devotional texts. 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.
