Review Quotes
"Benson has managed a delicate and difficult task with great good sense and discretion, and brought two excellent Middle English poems within reach of a much wider range of readers without seriously compromising their linguistic integrity." Modern Language Review

Main Description
The Stanzaic Morte Arthur engages with the tragic implications of the chivalric love between Lancelot, Arthur and Guinevere; the Alliterative Morte Arthure with those of the aspirations of militant chivalry espoused by Arthur and his knights. The texts have been edited for readers who have little or no training in Middle English.
