The texts of the seven romances included-Havelok, Ywain and Gawain, Sir Orfeo, Sir Launfal, The Awntyrs off Arthure at the Terne Wathelyne, The Weddyng of Syr Gawen and Dame Ragnell, and The Sege off Melayne-are complete, authoritative (rendered from the best manuscripts), and comprehensively glossed and annotated for undergraduate readers. In addition to their literary importance, the seven romances were chosen because they shed light on other important Middle English texts. "Sources and Backgrounds" offers comparative analogues (many complete) to each of the seven romances. These readings enable students to understand the genre in the context of related medieval ideas and attitudes. "Criticism" collects four essays that provide a variety of perspectives on Middle English romances by Erich Auerbach, John Finlayson, A. C. Baugh, and Gisela Guddat-Figge. A Selected Bibliography is also included.

Synopsis:

This Norton Critical Edition brings together representative examples of one of the most important bodies of English poetry written before the Renaissance. These seven romances have been chosen not only for their literary importance but also for the light they shed on other important Middle English texts. They are complete, glossed and annotated. A large "Sources and Backgrounds" section enables students to understand the romances in the context of medieval ideas and attitudes, and "Criticism" includes four major essays on various aspects of the Middle Ages genre.

About the Author:

Stephen H. A. Shepherd is Associate Professor of English at Loyola Marymount University. His honors include fellowships to the Huntington Library and the Bibliographical Society of America. He is the editor of the Middle-English Pseudo-Turpin Chronicle and of the Norton Critical Edition of Middle English Romances and coeditor of the Norton Critical Edition of Piers Plowman.
