Medieval English Lyrics : 1200-1400 (Penguin Classics)
Thomas G. Duncan (Editor)/Paperback/Published 1996
This volume opens with the first lyrics in English to celebrate love as romantic devotion to a woman. Some Chaucerian and all other Middle English love lyrics from before 1400 are included. Devotional lyrics portraying the tenderness of the later medieval response to Christ as lover and beloved and to the Virgin Mary are fully represented along with lyrics on penitential and moral themes and 'miscellaneous' lyrics such as drinking and dancing songs, ballads, satires and poems of wit, humour and sexual innuendo. These Middle English lyrics, edited anew from the original manuscripts, are presented in a readily readable form. Grammar and spelling have been normalized to accord with the dialect of late fourteenth-century London ('Chaucerian English'). An extensive glossary is provided beside the texts to aid readers who have little or no acquaintance with Middle English. Thomas Duncan provides a full commentary on textual and linguistic issues, and in his introduction he gives an illuminating appraisal of the lyrics, their forms, themes and context.

Mystics of the Middle Ages
Barry Windeatt (Editor)/Hardcover/Published 1994
This edition brings together for the first time key texts representing the writings of the medieval English mystics. The texts are newly edited from the manuscripts, and are supplemented with textual and explanatory notes and a glossary. The book focuses on five major authors, Richard Rolle, Walter Hilton, the anonymous author of The Cloud of Unknowing, Dame Julian of Norwich, and Margery Kempe. Shorter works are presented whole, where possible, and accompanied by extracts from the mystics' longer works; extracts from contemporary translations into English are also included to illustrate the reception of European mystical texts in later medieval England. Overall, this volume makes accessible some of the best work by English contemplatives and visionaries of the Middle Ages.
