10 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a collection of previously published essays on late medieval and early modern literature, designed to act as a companion to Chaucer to Spenser: An Anthology of Writings in English 1375-1575, edited by Derek Pearsall (1999). The object of that anthology is to provide representation of a variety of kinds of prose and verse, including some not traditionally regarded as canonically "literary," and also to trespass beyond the boundaries of the conventional medieval/early modern divide." "This volume of essays will provide some of the critical backing for those decisions about the canon and about periodization, and also give evidence of the vigor of opinion and debate in the field in general."--Jacket
