Product Description

Review

Malcolm Andrew and Ronald Waldron have fully revised their standard edition of the four poems of the Pearl-poet. The translation, along with the updated and extended critical and explanatory material, will render the new edition an extremely valuable resource for students at all levels. -- C.J.S. Medium Aevum Vol LXXVII 2008 I recommend to readers this revision of an edition that several generations of students and teachers have preceded me in endorsing. In a book of manageable size, the editors have succeeded in reconciling reliable scholarship with modern accessibility, and in balancing attention to individual poems with encouragement to explore the Gawain-corpus as a whole. Their edition provides a setting that can only deepen twenty-first-century appreciation for these luminous Middle English poems. Parergon - s, volume 26.1 2009 The fifth edition, overall, is a tremendous achievement, and secures Andrew and Waldon as the authoritative critical text and student edition of these poems. The Year's Work in English Studies, vol. 88, no. 1 2009

Format: Paperback
The Poems of the Pearl Manuscript: Pearl, Cleanness, Patience, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight (with new Introduction and prose translation on CD-ROM) ... and Incorporating Prose Translation on CD-ROM
Having made the choice of a paperback at a very reasonable price rather than the hardback at nearly £60, I was not expecting either the very rapid delivery or the pristine condition of the book. The standard of typography and design is very high, the glossary excellent, footnotes well laid out, and the CD-ROM "translation" a real bonus.
