Two medieval outlaws : Eustace the Monk and Fouke Fitz Waryn by Glyn S Burgess( Book )
13 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 299 libraries worldwide
Alongside the historical discussion of the lives of the protagonists of the two romances, Glyn Burgess reveals the multiple layers of the romances themselves: historically verifiable facts, information which cannot be proved but rings true, and a wide range of material which is manifestly imaginary, containing stock motifs also found in other romances of the period. His bringing to life of two forgotten outlaws is a fascinating context for his spirited translation of the romances themselves

The Old French narrative lay : an analytical bibliography by Glyn S Burgess( Book )
14 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 251 libraries worldwide
"This volume presents an analytical bibliography of twenty narrative lays written in French in the late twelfth and early thirteenth centuries - Aristote, Conseil, Cor, Desire, Doon, Espervier, Espine, Graelent, Guingamor, Haveloc, Ignaure, Lecheor, Mantel, Melion, Nabaret, Oiselet, Ombre, Trot, Tydorel and Tyolet - seeking to provide a complete list of the editions, translations, and substantial studies which have been devoted to them over the years. The choice of the twenty poems corresponds to Donovan's The Bretton Lay, the only synthesis so far available on this topic in English. Most references are accompanied by a summary which analyses their contribution to the topic under discussion, covering the item's significance and interest rather than simply analysing the contents. Items found in works of reference and briefer studies forming part of books or articles are included where appropriate. Each individual bibliography is intended to stand independently, with full references given in each case for editions and translations cross-references to important items found in other parts of the volume are given at the end of each bibliography. The twenty parts are preceded by a general section which lists contributions to more than one lay."--Jacket

The History of the Norman people : Wace's Roman de Rou by Wace( Book )
13 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 211 libraries worldwide
"Wace related the events partly in Alexandrines and partly in the octosyllabic rhyming couplets used by the romance writers of the day. At a time when the boundary between romance and history was blurred, he created a cast of characters and recounted a series of battles and adventures in a style which is the equal of any of his contemporaries."--Jacket
