Product description

Review

This book is the most effective introduction to Middle English literature that I know. It is everywhere alert to the ways that modern literary sensibilities need to be adjusted in order to appreciate the medieval norm, and Burrow combines astonishing learning with a pedagogical shrewdness that always picks out just the telling passage or focusing cultural fact. This second edition adds a great deal of new and equally important material to a work that had already become a classic in its own right. (Christopher Cannon, Girton College, Cambridge)

an excellent book for drawing attention to and clarifying the special difficulties of Middle English literature (TLS) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
