The Owl and the Nightingale PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Owl and the Nightingale free pdf "The Owl and the Nightingale" is one of the first and greatest long comic poems in the English language and one of the best-known and most accomplished of all medieval literary texts. By turns both gleefully trivial and allusively serious, it has been described by literary critics as a "most miraculous piece of writing", "a marvel of literary art" and "a truly amazing phenomenon". This the first new English edition of the poem since 1960. It contains a parallel-text translation in modern English, as well as a glossary, notes and introduction. The edition has involved a complete reconsideration of the poem's complex textual history, its linguistic provenance and the practices of its scribes, as well as its possible sources.
