Abstract: Guillaume de Machaut is the most important poet and composer of late medieval France. His unique and inventive output is the subject of this new, integrated edition of Machaut’s complete poetry and music. Volume 1, The Debate Series, presents the two “judgment” poems, which are among his most important artistically in terms of their formal innovations and their influence on contemporaries, notably Geoffrey Chaucer, and the associated Lay de plour, presented here with its music. This volume includes the French originals and facing English translations.

Lydgate's Fabula Duorum Mercatorum and Guy of Warwick (Book)
Title: Lydgate's Fabula Duorum Mercatorum and Guy of Warwick
Author: John Lydgate
Editor: Pamela Farvolden, Volume Editor
Editor: Russell A. Peck, General Editor
Editor: Alan Lupack, Associate Editor
Editor: Pamela M. Yee, Middle English Texts Series Assistant Editor
Abstract: The Fabula Duorum Mercatorum, a romance that in its Boethian sensibility and treatment of love and friendship bears comparison to Chaucer’s great works Troilus and Criseyde and The Knight’s Tale, is one of Lydgate’s most accomplished works. In Guy of Warwick, Lydgate breaks with romance tradition, presenting the heroic English knight-pilgrim and his last great battle against the dread giant Colbrond from an historical point of view.

The Katherine Group (MS Bodley 34): Religious Writings for Women in Medieval England (Book)
Title: The Katherine Group (MS Bodley 34): Religious Writings for Women in Medieval England
Editor: Russell Peck, METS General Editor
Editor: Alan Lupack, METS Associate Editor
Editor: Pamela M. Yee, METS Assistant Editor
Editor: Elizabeth Robertson
Editor: Emily Rebekah Huber
Abstract: The Katherine Group brings together for the first time newly edited and translated versions of three dynamic saints’ lives, The Lives of Saints Katherine, Margaret and Juliana, a quirky but rhetorically persuasive guide to virginity, Hali Meidenhad, and a psychologically astute sermon, Sawles Warde (“The Guardianship of the Soul”). These works are important witnesses to the development of Middle English writing after the Conquest and to the rigorous anchoritic spiritual life pursued by female recluses in medieval England.

John Hardyng Chronicle: Edited from British Library MS Lansdown 204, Vol. 1 (Book)
Title: John Hardyng Chronicle: Edited from British Library MS Lansdown 204, Vol. 1
Author: John Hardyng
Editor: James Simpson and Sarah Peverley
Abstract: One of a handful of texts written in the twilight years of Henry VI's reign, John Hardyng's first Chronicle, written in 18,782 lines of verse and seven folios of prose, offers a compelling insight into the tastes, hopes, and anxieties of a late fifteenth century gentleman who witnessed -- and all too often participated in -- each of the key events that defined his era. Completed in 1457, Hardyng's initial Chronicle has previously been largely overlooked in comparison to the more condensed second version, written to promote Richard, Duke of York's claim to the throne. Hardyng's interest in Britain's past is typical of the gentry's enthusiasm for historical works, while his concern with war and duty reflects the importance of such matters to men of his rank.

Oton de Granson: Poems (Book)
Title: Oton de Granson: Poems
Author: Oton de Granson
Editor: Peter Nicholson
Editor: Joan Grenier-Winther
Editor: Russell Peck, METS General Editor
Editor: Alan Lupack, METS Associate Editor
Editor: Pamela M. Yee, METS Assistant Editor
Abstract: Oton de Granson, slain in a duel in 1397, was a knight, diplomat, and poet, who lived an active, almost storybook life at or near the center of many of the most important events in the last half of the fourteenth century. He was almost certainly a personal friend to both Chaucer and Eustache Deschamps and among the first and most successful of the poets who were also courtiers. This new translation makes Granson's poetry available again to English readers.

Richard Coer de Lyon (Book)
Title: Richard Coer de Lyon
Editor: Peter Larkin
Editor: Russell Peck, METS General Editor
Editor: Alan Lupack, METS Associate Editor
Editor: Pamela M. Yee, METS Assistant Editor
Abstract: One of the most engaging Middle English crusading poems, Richard Coer de Lyon recounts in verse the exploits, both historical and fanciful, of Richard I, king of England. While Richard's participation in the Third Crusade serves as its main subject, the poem disrupts its historical narrative with a number of fabulous interpolations, two of which are particularly notorious: the depiction of Richard's mother as a demon, and the portrayal of the king himself as a voracious cannibal. Once the source of critical disparagement, the poem's blending of history and fantasy-its historical distortions-have recently become the focus of renewed interest in the poem. With a substantial introduction and comprehensive explanatory and textual notes, this new edition of Richard Coer de Lyon signally contributes to the reappraisal and understanding of what became-during the centuries-long process of its composition-one of the most popular of medieval romances.
