Chaucer's Wife of Bath's prologue and tale : an annotated bibliography, 1900 to 1995 by Peter G Beidler( file )
13 editions published between 1998 and 2016 in English and held by 1,581 libraries worldwide
One of Chaucer's most popular and complex characters, the Wife of Bath has inspired a rich and diverse range of published scholarship. This work is the latest in the University of Toronto Press's Chaucer Bibliographies series, a series which aims to provide annotated bibliographies for all of Chaucer's works, and summarizes twentieth-century commentary on the Chaucer's Wife of Bath's Prologue and Tale. There are six sections to the bibliography, with items arranged chronologically in each section: editions and translations, sources and analogues, the marriage group, gentillesse or nobility, the General Prologue, the Wife of Bath's Prologue and the actual Tale.The editors have assembled a comprehensive bibliography covering not only standard English literature, medieval studies, and Chaucerian studies sources, but also less well-known references and items published in languages other than English. Developments in Chaucer criticism are traced and grouped thematically, a particular benefit for those approaching Chaucerian studies for the first time

The wife of Bath by Geoffrey Chaucer( Book )
17 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 606 libraries worldwide
The Wyves Tale of Bathe and prologue are among the best-known of Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. They give insight into the role of women in the Late Middle Ages and are probably of interest to Chaucer himself, for the character is one of his most developed ones, with her prologue twice as long as her tale

"This edition of James's classic novel presents the 1908 New York Edition along with five critical essays - newly commissioned or revised for a student audience - that read The Turn of the Screw from five contemporary critical perspectives." "Each critical essay is accompanied by a succinct introduction to the history, principles, and practice of the critical perspective and by a bibliography that promotes further exploration of that approach." "In addition, the text and essays are complemented by an introduction providing biographical and historical contexts for James and The Turn of the Screw, a survey of critical responses to the novel since its initial publication, and a glossary of critical and theoretical terms."--Jacket

Murdering Indians : a documentary history of the 1897 killings that inspired Louise Erdrich's the Plague of Doves by Peter G Beidler( Book )
6 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 193 libraries worldwide
In February of 1897, a family of six -- four generations, including twin infant sons and their aged great-grandmother -- was brutally murdered in rural North Dakota. The weapons used were a shotgun, an axe, a pitchfork, a spade, and a club. Several Dakota Indians from the nearby Standing Rock reservation were arrested, and one was tried, pronounced guilty and sentenced to be hanged. The conviction was reversed by the state Supreme Court, which ordered a new trial. Only a week later, however, a mob of thirty angry men broke into the county jail in the middle of the night, dragged three of the five accused Indians out, and hanged them from a butcher's windlass. These events were fodder for hundreds of newspaper articles, letters, and legal documents. Many of those documents, including the transcript of the trial convicting one of the Indians and the statement by the state Supreme Court reversing the conviction, are collected in this work, and, with the author's commentary, tell a disturbing tale of racism and revenge in the pioneer West, one that provided the basic story line for Ojibwe novelist Louise Erdrich's acclaimed novel The Plague of Doves
The Native American in short fiction in the Saturday Evening Post : an annotated bibliography by Peter G Beidler( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 181 libraries worldwide
The authors "focus on the Indian in the short fiction from the magazine, giving summaries of the plots, including dialogue from the characters, to show how American Indians were presented by story writers. The earliest of these stories appeared in 1897, the last in 1968. Over this period of approximately seventy years, 265 stories contain one Indian or many. In some they are only mentioned; in others they are central actors."--Editor's foreword, p. xi
Rafts & other rivercraft in Huckleberry Finn by Peter G Beidler( Book )
5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 171 libraries worldwide
In this book, structured largely as a series of answers to rhetorical questions about the nomenclature and physical makeup of rivercraft in Mark Twain's works and elsewhere, Beidler exerts complete salvage rights over the raft itself. Beidler's detailed annotations give us a solid grub stake for grasping the material culture of Huck Finn and, thus, enlarging our understanding of the book as a whole. --Jacket
The lives of the Miller's Tale : the roots, composition and retellings of Chaucer's bawdy story by Peter G Beidler( Book )
6 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 158 libraries worldwide
"With his Miller's Tale Chaucer transformed a colorless Middle Dutch account into the lively, dramatic story of raunchy Nicholas, sexy Alison, foolish John and squeamish Absolon. This book focuses on the ways the narrative more effective through dialogue, scene division, music, visual effects and staging. The book's second half covers more than 30 of the tale's retellings"
The Canterbury tales by Geoffrey Chaucer( Book )
4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 127 libraries worldwide
"Lively, absorbing, often outrageously funny, Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales is a work of genius, an undisputed classic that has held a special appeal for each generation of readers. The Tales gathers twenty-nine of literature's most enduring (and endearing) characters in a vivid group portrait that captures the full spectrum of medieval society, from the exalted Knight to the humble Plowman. This new edition includes a comprehensive introduction that summarizes some of the most important historical events and movements that defined the world of Chaucer and his pilgrims; two additional tales (Reeve's and Shipman's); introductions for each tale designed to prepare the reader for a better understanding and enjoyment of the tale; newly written and conveniently placed explanatory notes; and a new, more easily understood system for learning to pronounce Chaucerian Middle English."
