Cambridge University Press, Cambridge (.), 1992. XVIII,414p. Hardbound with dust wrps. Nice copy. ?This is one of the most satisfying books I have ever read. It fills a major need in the study of medieval England, and does so with authority, and verbe. George Rigg has read both widely and perceptively; has organized his material in a straightforward, sensible way, and has presented it attractively. (?) The organization by reigns is as good as any and enables Rigg to associate the literature with political and cultural changes. Each chapter starts with a brief survey of major events and significant cultural forces; these are pointed and useful. Each ends with a backward look, which usually stresses literary movements and relations only. In between, authors are taken up individually in a rough chronological order, with further attention to external events when necessary. The chronological order is interrupted at times when it has seemed good to Rigg to group writings by genre.? (TRAUGOTT LAWLER IN Speculum, 1996, p.202). Antiquarian. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 47153

Über diesen Titel


A comprehensive history of medieval Anglo-Latin writings (which represent an astonishing nine tenths of English literary culture in the period). The past century since the last major work on this subject has seen the discovery and editing of many important texts. A. G. Rigg's new authoritative reference work underlines how the view of England's literary history in the Middle Ages as a decline from Anglo-Saxon culture (recuperated only in the fourteenth century in the work of writers such as Chaucer) ignores the flourishing tradition of Latin literature written between England's enforced entry into the European mainstream and the rise of the vernacular and of humanism. It reveals a very rich corpus of writings, comprising epic, lyric, comedy, satire, prose anecdotes, romance, saints' lives and devotional texts. This chronological history gives quotations in the original Latin with English translations in verse or prose; Anglo-Latin metres are explained and exemplified in an appendix.

Book Description:

A comprehensive history of medieval Anglo-Latin literature, which represents an astonishing nine tenths of English written culture in the period better known for the vernacular works of Chaucer and others.

Scrinium Classical Antiquity, member of the Dutch Association of Antiquarian Booksellers (NVvA - ILAB), stands for a specialized stock of new, secondhand and antiquarian books about Classical Antiquity. The main theme of our books is Classical Antiquity: texts and commentaries, translations, archeology, philosophy, travel, history, mythology, books for young people, philology, law, reception of classical motives in Middle Ages, Renaissance and our own time and neo-Hellenika (conptemporary Greece), and many more subjects. A more modest quantity of our books concerns countries, civilisations and religious movements on the edges of the classical world: e.g. Egypt, Middle East and Early Christianity. New books are partly in stock, partly to be ordered from publishers. We are connected to a large number of publishers and distributors, established both in the Netherlands and abroad.
