This volume gives scholars and students of medieval literature the opportunity to experience the full range of middle English debate poetry - debate poety being here defined as verbal confrontations between relatively evenly matched opponents. The poems have been selected for their representative qualities as well as for their literary qualities. The selection includes many of the most highly regarded debate poems from middle English literature, including "Winner and Waster", "The Parliament of the Three Ages", and "Death and Life". Also included are the best of the body and soul debates and several poems from the English bird-debate tradition; alliterative debates; lovers dialogues; and didactic and satiric debates.
