Description - A Book of Middle English by J. A. Burrow

This essential textbook introduces readers to the wide range of literature written in England between 1150 and 1400. The book opens with an introduction to the language of the time, designed to enable the reader to understand the representative pieces of Middle English literature that follow. The authors describe the language as it was used in different parts of the country, show how it evolved over this period, and offer guidance on pronunciation, grammar, metre and vocabulary. Already a standard classroom text, A Book of Middle English has been extensively enhanced for the third edition. The authors have revised key works in light of new editions, updated bibliographic entries, and have added two new texts. Taken as a whole, the book is the ideal overview of Middle English language and literature.
