The Arthur of the French : the Arthurian legend in medieval French and Occitan literature by Glyn S Burgess( Book )
12 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 312 libraries worldwide
This major reference work is the fourth volume in the series "Arthurian Literature in the Middle Ages". Its intention is to update the French and Occitan chapters in R.S. Loomis' "Arthurian Literature in the Middle Ages: A Collaborative History" (Oxford, 1959) and to provide a volume which will serve the needs of students and scholars of Arthurian literature. The principal focus is the production, dissemination and evolution of Arthurian material in French and Occitan from the twelfth to the fifteenth century. Beginning with a substantial overview of Arthurian manuscripts, the volume covers writing in both verse (Wace, the Tristan legend, Chretien de Troyes and the Grail Continuations, Marie de France and the anonymous lays, the lesser known romances) and prose (the Vulgate Cycle, the prose Tristan, the Post-Vulgate Roman du Graal, etc.). -- From publisher's website
Two medieval outlaws : Eustace the Monk and Fouke Fitz Waryn by Glyn S Burgess( Book )
15 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 303 libraries worldwide
Eustace the Monk and Fouke Fitz Waryn belong in the great tradition of medieval outlaws, and aspects of their lives, part-fact, part-fiction, find a reflection in the life of that most famous of all outlaws, Robin Hood. Glyn Burgess puts into modern English the two vernacular romances of the thirteenth century which relate their deeds, Li Romans de Witasse le Moine and Fouke le Fitz Waryn. He presents the historical reality of their respective 'heroes', important but neglected figures: both were born around 1170; both broke with their overlords, the Count of Boulogne and King John, at around the same time; and both spent a period as outlaws, during which they toyed with their lords and exacted revenge for the injustice they suffered. Eustace was not only an outlaw and a sea captain, but a pirate and magician; he was one of the most feared men of his day. Fouke's life was dominated by his attempt to take possession of Whittington Castle in Shropshire, to which his family laid claim

The Old French narrative lay : an analytical bibliography by Glyn S Burgess( Book )
15 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 256 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

French Arthurian literature ( Book )
11 editions published in 2007 in English and French, Old [ca. 842-1300] and held by 127 libraries worldwide
"The lay was a flourishing genre in the French courts of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, related to romance rather as the modern short story is to the novel. Its most famous exponent is arguably Marie de France, but in addition to her twelve lays, a number of authors, mainly anonymous, have also come down to us, usually referred to as Breton lays or simply as narrative lays." "The eleven anonymous lays presented in this volume show the varied nature of the genre. First brought together as a collection by Prudence Tobin in 1976, they have been freshly edited from the manuscript sources. They are presented here with facing English translation, together with substantial introductions for each lay, which deal principally with thematic issues and questions of general literary interest."--BOOK JACKET
