The Complete Harley 2253 Manuscript (in three volumes) (Book)
Title: The Complete Harley 2253 Manuscript (in three volumes)
Editor: Suzanna Fein
Editor: David Raybin
Editor: Jan Ziolkowski
Editor: Pamela M. Yee, METS Assistant Editor
Editor: Russell Peck, METS General Editor
Editor: Alan Lupack, METS Associate Editor
Abstract: London, British Library MS Harley 2253 is one of the most important literary books to survive from the English medieval era. In rarity, quality and abundance, its secular love lyrics comprise an unrivaled collection. Intermingled with them are contemporary political songs as well as lyrics designed to inspire religious devotion. Beyond these English works are less-well-known ones in French and Latin: four fabliaux (the largest set from medieval England), three lives of Anglo-Saxon saints and satires, comedies, debates, interludes, collected sayings, conduct literature, Bible stories, dream interpretations, and pilgrim guides. With texts in three languages, the book has a wide range. The Ludlow scribe, compiler and copyist, shows himself to have been a man of unusual curiosity, acquisitiveness and discerning connoisseurship.
