The shorter poems of Gavin Douglas by Gawin Douglas( Book )

23 editions published between 1967 and 2003 in English and English, Middle and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1967, this edition has been revised and updated by its editor, and includes substantial additional notes and bibliography. It contains Douglas's Palice of Honour, the major dream-vision poem he composed a decade before his Eneados translation. The Palice is a sprightly and learned poem, responsive both to Chaucerian and to Ovidian influences, but also inventively independent of them. Its yoking of poetics and the pursuit of virtue shows Douglas to be a significant early Renaissance writer. The volume also contains revised editions of two poems associated with Douglas, though unlikely to be his, the short poem Conscience and the lengthier and still neglected allegory of desire and self-government King Hart."--Pub. desc

15 editions published between 1937 and 1992 in 5 languages and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Virgil, a Roman poet of the first century B.C., chose the epic form of the Greek master, Homer, to embody his tale of the wanderings and adventures of Aeneas. Aeneas, who appears as a minor character, a Trojan prince & an enemy of the Greek heroes, in the Iliad, here occupies center stage
The Makars : the poems of Henryson, Dunbar, and Douglas( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The poetry of the Makars marked an extraordinary flowering of Scottish culture and the Scots language in the 15th and early 16th centuries. This anthology, introduced, edited and annotated by J. A. Tasioulas, makes available for the modern reader the complete poems of both Henryson and Dunbar, as well as Gavin Douglas's The Palis of Honoure. Old Scots words are glossed and medieval and classical references are explained to make this the most approachable collection of major poems in a period which forged a nation's cultural and political sense of itself, from the moral subtlety of Henryson, to the wild flytings of Dunbar, to the democratic humanism of Gavin Douglas."--BOOK JACKET
