I love this book! I have yet to find a Jeremy Smith book I didn't like, he explains complex concepts in ways that are fun and understandable. I highly recommend for anyone interested in studying historical English!

I referred to this book during revision for my English Language exam at Glasgow Univeristy, where both Professor Smith and Dr Horobin lecture and tutor and i found the book a fascinating read. Crucially, the book is written very well, with nice interludes of interesting facts, and is not 'bogged down' by too much theory. With this in mind, 'An Introduction to Middle English' is not only a useful study aid it is basically a good read and provides the reader with some excellent pieces of historical and linguistic information to impress people with at formal events!

It's a bit heavy on technical jargon for a home reader such as myself. But this is no doubt what is needed for its intended student audience. Leaving that aside, towards the end there are 25 pages of middle English texts and notes, enough to get you reading full length works. The preceeding chapters on grammar and vocabulary are short and full of interesting stuff which ties ME into place relative to Old English just as strongly as it links to modern English. Learn the IPA as it relates to modern English to get the best out of the pronunciation chapter.
Very enjoyable and short enough to be read for pleasure by non-specialists as well as serious students.

This is a useful introduction to Middle English for students taking a taught course in Middle English literature at university or for anyone else interested in the subject matter. At times it can be a little dry and it also does not go into great depth, but it will definitely allow you to get a good basic grasp of Middle English, which will increase your enjoyment of Middle English literature.
