Middle English Texts Series (METS)

Preparation for print and web publication of fifteen to seventeen volumes of medieval literary texts, focused on the 13th to 16th centuries. (36 months)

The Middle English Text Series (METS) is an ongoing project, now in its 24th year. 78 volumes have been published. This proposal requests funding that will produce approximately 15 more volumes. Above all else, the purpose of METS is to make available for scholarly use reliable editions of Middle English literature deemed essential for literary and historical investigation. The focus of this project is upon literature from the 13th to the early 16th centuries that complement the better-known canonical authors and reach to the boundaries of what was rapidly becoming a considerable corpus of vernacular literature and the beginnings of English literary study. Given its print and online formats the Series has demonstrably enhanced Humanist inquiry of English and Anglo-Norman culture worldwide -- from France, Italy, and Germany to China, Korea, India, Australia, and New Zealand.

Middle English Texts Series

Preparation for publication of 12-16 volumes of medieval texts from the 13th through the 16th centuries. All texts will be made available online through the University of Rochester. (36 months)

The goal of this grant is to produce, over the next three years, approximately sixteen volumes of medieval texts intended for classroom and electronic use. Most will be texts of Middle English literature, although a few will be French or Welsh texts that have strong bearing on the study of English culture in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries.

Middle English Texts Series

Preparation of multiple volumes of a series of editions of important Middle English texts. (24 Months)

The University of Rochester, the Consortium for the Teaching of the Middle Ages (TEAMS), and Medieval Institute Publications of Western Michigan University, have been collaborating over the past fifteen years in the preparation and publication of scholarly editions of Middle English and Early-Modern English texts that are suitable for classroom and individual use by students of Medieval Literature at all ages of study - from beginners to the most advanced scholars. With the assistance of three grants from the NEH, we have thus far published fifty-two volumes, which remain in print indefinitely, and all of which are available online with free access to individual users. The impact of the Series has, thus far, been monumental in opening up possibilities in the depiction of medieval literature and culture within the classroom, with specificities previously unimaginable. The range of texts in print and online cuts across traditional disciplinary boundaries between departments of literature, history, religion, politics, and art. What had originally been conceived of as a series of pedagogical texts aimed toward an undergraduate audience has become, especially in the last half-dozen years, a respected resource for authoritative critical editions. With an additional twenty volumes on the immediate horizon, and twenty-five others in the works, each a potentially significant contribution to the canon, we are applying for continued NEH support. The texts are prepared at the University of Rochester, where an expert editorial staff monitors with care the several stages of the production of each volume.

Editing a Late 15th Century Miscellany of Middle English Poetry

I am currently preparing an edition of Oxford, Bodleian MS Ashmole 61, a late fifteenth-century miscellany of Middle English poetry. When completed, the edition will consist of 41 Middle English texts, with an introduction, glosses, and commentary, as well as a bibliography and glossary. The edition will be published by TEAMS, the Consortium for the Teaching of the Middle Ages. During the term of the grant, I will complete the commentary and the introduction, and make a final consultation of the manuscript in Oxford.
