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 IV, which comprises Parts VII and VIII of the original set, contains ballads 189-265, including "Rob Roy," "Sir James the Rose," "Geordie," "The Gypsy Laddie," "The New-Slain Knight," and "The False Lover Won Back." Unabridged republication of the works originally published between 1882 and 1898.

Book News Annotation:

Parts Six and Seven of the fourth volume cover ballads from 189 to 265, including such popular ones as The Gypsy Laddie, Geordie, The Braes of Yarrow, Eppie Morrie, and The Demon Lover. 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.
