English & Scottish Popular Ballads Volume 3 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"This great achievement seems destined to endure as long as the ballads themselves; few scholars have left so lasting a monument."—Dictionary of American Biography

Published between 1882 and 1898, Professor Child's study of popular ballads in the English language was the first comprehensive survey of all extant ballads and their known variants. Its absolute fidelity to the original texts, together with Child's invaluable commentary on each ballad, make it an unsurpassed resource. Volume III, which comprises Parts V and VI of the original set, contains ballads 114–188, "Mary Hamilton," "Flodden Field," "Sir Andrew Barton," "The Hunting of the Cheviot," and more than 30 ballads about Robin Hood. Unabridged republication of the works originally published between 1882 and 1898.

Book News Annotation:

The third volume is the treasure trove of Robin Hood ballads, nearly 50 of them. It combines the original Part Four (numbers 156-188) and Part Five (numbers 144-155) of Child's now classic collection. Child introduces each ballad and includes variants in part or in full as called for. Each volume appends additions and corrections for all the ballads up to that point; the table of contents points to those. This reprinting is from the 1965 Dover edition.
