About the Author

Stanley Hussey was formerly Professor of medieval English at the University of Lancaster Michael Sargent is Professor of English at Queen's College, City University of New York


Sargent...provides two surviving tables of chapters in the text from two different manuscripts, a full set of explanatory notes, a glossary, and an index of quotations and allusions. The result is not only a useful edition of an important text, but also, given Sargent's extensive reflection on his editorial approach, a significant contribution to editorial theory in Middle English studies. * Daniel Sawyer, The English Association *
