Most widely held works by Nevill Coghill
The Canterbury tales by Geoffrey Chaucer( Book )
184 editions published between 1951 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,995 libraries worldwide
A retelling of the medieval poem about a group of travelers on a pilgrimage to Canterbury and the tales they tell each other. With their astonishing diversity of tone and subject matter, The Canterbury Tales have become one of the touchstones of medieval literature. Translated here into modern English, these tales of a motley crowd of pilgrims drawn from all walks of life-from knight to nun, miller to monk-reveal a picture of English life in the fourteenth century that is as robust as it is representative

Troilus and Criseyde by Geoffrey Chaucer( Book )
26 editions published between 1970 and 2008 in English and held by 801 libraries worldwide
The three Oxford Guides to Chaucer are written by scholars of international repute, with the purpose of summarizing what is known about his works and offering interpretations based on recent advances in both historical knowledge and theoretical understanding. Barry Windeatt's volume on Troilus and Criseyde examines the poem that is Chaucer's most ambitious single achievement, his masterpiece, and one of the very finest narrative poems in the English language. The story of love fulfilled and trust betrayed - of how Troilus and Criseyde discover love, and how she abandons him for Diomede after her departure from Troy - is presented by Chaucer with profound insight into human character and explored through its philosophical and spiritual dimensions. This Oxford Guide is the most comprehensive introduction to Troilus and Criseyde yet produced. It includes the fullest and most convenient account of Chaucer's imaginative use of his sources, the first extended analysis of the poem's originality of genre, and a readable commentary on all aspects of the work, its structure, themes, characterization, and style. It also contains a survey of literary responses to Troilus in the three centuries following Chaucer's death. The Guide combines the informative substance of a reference book with the coherence of a critical reading, and is set to establish itself as a standard work on Troilus and Criseyde

The divine comedy of Dante Alighieri by Dante Alighieri( Book )
9 editions published between 1990 and 2007 in English and held by 376 libraries worldwide
This first volume of this new Divine Comedy presents the Italian text of the Inferno and, on facing pages, a new prose translation (the first in twenty-five years). Robert Durling's translation brings a new power and accuracy to the rendering of Dante's extraordinary vision of Hell, with all its terror, pathos, and sardonic humor, and its penetrating analyses of the psychology of sin and the ills that plague society. Martinez and Durling's introduction and notes are designed with the first-time reader of the poem in mind but will be useful to others as well. The concise introduction presents essential biographical and historical background and a discussion of the form of the poem. The notes are more extensive than those in most translations currently available, and they contain much new material. In addition, sixteen short essays explore the autobiographical dimension of the poem, the problematic body analogy, the question of Christ's presence in Hell, and individual cantos that have been the subject of controversy, including those on homosexuality. There is an extensive bibliography, and the four indexes (to foreign words, passages cited, proper names in the notes, and to proper names in the text and translation) will make the volume particularly useful. Robert Turner's illustrations include detailed maps of Italy, clearly labeled diagrams of the cosmos and of the structure of Hell, and line drawings illustrating objects and places mentioned in the poem

7 editions published in 1974 in English and Undetermined and held by 231 libraries worldwide
This drawing-room comedy is a modern verse play about the search for meaning, in which a psychiatrist is the catalyst for the action. "Eliot really does portray real-seeming characters. He cuts down his poetic effects to the minimum, and then finally rewards us with most beautiful poetry" (Stephen Spender)
