The Brendan legend texts and versions ( file )
9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,043 libraries worldwide
"The Brendan Legend: Texts and Versions" deals with the vast textual tradition relating to the Irish Saint Brendan, known as 'The Navigator'. Stories about Brendan have been popular in the whole of Western Europe, from the seventh to the twentieth century. The themes of the book are the interrelated problems of the textual and literary embedding of Brendan texts. For the first time researchers in Celtic, German, Latin and Romance languages and literatures have co-operated on the Brendan tradition, and they have mapped the changes in textual traditions according to different circumstances and audiences. This book will be important to those studying the influence of Celtic literature on the European Continent, and, more generally, to those interested in the versatility of textual traditions over Western Europe

Two medieval outlaws : Eustace the Monk and Fouke Fitz Waryn by Glyn S Burgess( Book )
9 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 283 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

"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
