This volume starts with the writings of Bede and covers the range of Medieval literature up to the time of Thomas More. The Old English selections which include extracts from Beowulf and well-known riddles and elegies, are in modern English translation. The Middle English writings, from Langland, Chaucer, Malory and many others, are presented in the original language with marginal notes, or with a full translation where appropriate. This anthology contains new translations of some well-known works, and provides an illuminating insight into this fascinating period.
