Publisher Comments:

The Owl and the Nightingale is one of the first and greatest long comic poems in the English language and one of the best-known and most accomplished of all medieval literary texts. By turns both gleefully trivial and allusively serious, it has been described by literary critics as a "most miraculous piece of writing", "a marvel of literary art" and "a truly amazing phenomenon". There is no other edition currently in print and this is the first new English edition of the poem since 1960.The book contains a lively parallel-text translation in modern English, as well as a glossary, notes and Introduction. The edition has involved a complete reconsideration of the poem's complex textual history, its linguistic provenance and the practices of its scribes, as well as its possible sources.

Book News Annotation:

Lively and light-hearted, The Owl and the Nightingale is one of the first and greatest long comic poems written in English and one of the best known and most accomplished of all medieval literary texts. In this volume, Cartlidge (Old and Middle English, U. College Dublin) provides a parallel-text translation in modern English, as well as a comprehensive glossary, and detailed notes. The translation is preceded by an introduction discussing several aspects of the poem, including its authorship, date, and provenance; its critical reception; the context in which it was circulated; sources and analogues of the poem; its circulation and transmission; and linguistic features. Intended for both experts of early Middle English and those who are relatively new to it. Distributed by David Brown Book Company. No subject index.
