A history of Anglo-Latin literature, 597-1066 by W. F Bolton( Book )

Taking as its chronological and geographical limits the period and area of Anglo-Saxon domination, this study provides a guide to the Latin literature that existed alongside the vernacular. It does so through a chronological survey of known works, based on a thorough examination of documents and of modern scholarship. It includes ample illustrative quotations, with accompanying English translations, and the forms associated with individual (although sometimes anonymous) writers, the histories, biographies, letters, poetry, treatises, and some liturgies. An important feature of the book is the very full bibliography, which is keyed to the text discussions. Originally published in 1967. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 10 libraries worldwide
"Eleven literary scholars and linguists examine the range of transmission processes important to medieval literature and to the history of the English language. Contributors investigate issues such as the editorial reshaping of manuscripts; the reformulation of textual material as it crosses genres; and the mediation of doctrine through translation. Several authors study cases of transmission and exchange significant to the development of Middle and Modern English. Each of these essays considers the convoluted nature of the transmission process in question, and reconsiders the historical framework that has informed our own reception of it."--Jacket
