Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For students of Middle English, Malcolm Andrews and Ronald Waldrons The Poems of the Pearl Manuscript has been the key edition of the four Pearl poems for over thirty years. This volume includes the first print edition of the English prose translations of the poem, which were previously only available on a CD-ROM that accompanied the revised edition of the poems. The new prose translations are based faithfully on Andrew and Waldrons new fifth edition of The Poems of the Pearl Manuscript—and by using prose in lieu of verse, the authors have ensured that the translations remain as close and accurate to the original as possible. Aimed at the student of medieval English literature, these translations can also be used as a means of checking the accuracy of students own renditions of the originals—making this a key text for university courses and the interested general reader of Middle English.
 

Synopsis:

For students of Middle English, Andrew and Waldron's The Poems of the Pearl Manuscript in Modern English Prose Translation has been the key edition of the four Pearl poems for over thirty years.

With the changing needs of today's students in mind, the editors produced a complete prose translation of the four poems - the best known of which is Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.

The near-literal translations are intended to facilitate understanding of the four poems - to lead readers to, rather than away from, the original texts. The translations are based faithfully on Andrew and Waldron's fifth edition of The Poems of the Pearl Manuscript. This paperback edition is new to the Exeter Medieval Texts and Studies series.
