Brut by Layamon( Book )

59 editions published between 1847 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This version of Brut is a rendering into modern English, in verse format, of the Middle English story of Britain, from its founding by the legendary Brutus, a supposed descendant of the Trojans, to the final loss of land and prestige when the Saxons took over Britain. Lawman, a priest in the Welsh Marches in the diocese of Worcester, was translating from the twelfth-century French octosyllabic couplets of Wace, who came from Jersey and was himself translating Geoffrey of Monmouth's Latin prose. Lawman's narrative poem, probably written in the first quarter of the thirteenth-century, is a compound of chronicle, romance, saint's life and sermon." -- Book jacket flap

Brut, or, Hystoria Brutonum by Layamon( Book )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and Italian and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At sixteen-thousand lines long, Layamon's Brut, written c.1200-1220, is the second longest poem in the English language. This national epic celebrates a myth, largely invented by Geoffrey of Monmouth, in his Historia (1138) and elaborated by the Jerseyman Wace (1155), of a Britain founded by Trojan refugees, repeatedly beset by foreign invasions and internal treachery across the centuries, triumphantly unified under such heroes as Uther Pendragon and Arthur

Arthurian chronicles by Wace( Book )

33 editions published between 1912 and 2015 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is an editions and translation of the first extant vernacular 'history' of Britain, by the Norman-French cleric Wace. His verse chronicle was in turn a translation, from the Latin prose of Geoffrey of Monmouth's History of the Kings of Britain (c. 1138). It traces British history, part factual, part fictional, stretching from Brutus., the eponymous founder of the nation, up to seventh century, when Anglo-Saxon invaders took control of the island. Some well-known stories appear here for the first time, such as that of King Lear and the earliest full-blown 'biography' of King Arthur. The Normans were keen to discover, and where they could not discover, invent, the history of the land they had conquered. Geoffrey's work filled that need, and Wace continued the process by making such history still more accessible and memorable, putting it into French verse and presenting it to Eleanor of Aquitaine, the cultivated wife of his king, in 1155. This volume provides the French text en face, revised from Ivor Arnold's 1938 edition and restoring many readings from his base manuscripts. It includes a full introduction by the translator." -- Publisher's description
