The shorter poems of Gavin Douglas by Gawin Douglas( Book )
21 editions published between 1967 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 348 libraries worldwide
"First published in 1967, this edition has been revised and updated by its editor, and includes substantial additional notes and bibliography. It contains Douglas's Palice of Honour, the major dream-vision poem he composed a decade before his Eneados translation. The Palice is a sprightly and learned poem, responsive both to Chaucerian and to Ovidian influences, but also inventively independent of them. Its yoking of poetics and the pursuit of virtue shows Douglas to be a significant early Renaissance writer. The volume also contains revised editions of two poems associated with Douglas, though unlikely to be his, the short poem Conscience and the lengthier and still neglected allegory of desire and self-government King Hart."--Pub. desc
Dunbar the makar by Priscilla J Bawcutt( Book )
13 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 347 libraries worldwide
William Dunbar is a poet whose virtuosity is often praised, but rarely analysed. This major study, the first to be published in over ten years, examines his view of himself as a poet, or 'makar', and the way he handles various poetic genres. It challenges the over-simple and reductive views purveyed by some critics, that Dunbar is primarily a moralist or no more than a talented virtuoso. New emphasis is placed on the petitions, or begging-poems, and their use for poetic introspection. There is also a particularly full study of Dunbar's undervalued comic poems, and of the modes most congenial to him--notably parody, irony, 'flyting', or invective, and black dream-fantasy. Taking account of recent scholarship, Priscilla Bawcutt explores the complex literary traditions available to Dunbar, both in Latin and the vernaculars, including 'popular' and alliterative poetry as well as that of Chaucer and his followers. This original, learned, and critically searching book is set to become the leading analysis of one of the most fascinating and accomplished of medieval poets
