A Literary History of England
Volume 1, The Middles AgeseBook - 1967
The paperback edition, in four volumes, of this standard work will make it readily available to students.
The scope of the work makes it valuable as a work of reference, connecting one period with another and placing each author clearly in the setting of his time.
Reviewing the first edition, The Times Literary Supplement commented: ‘in inclusiveness and in judgment it has few rivals of its kind’.
This first volume covers The Middle Ages (to 1500) in two sections: The Old English Period (to 1100) by Kemp Malone (John Hopkins University), and The Middle English Period (1100-1500) by Albert C. Baugh (University of Pennsylvania).
