A Look Inside
Main Description
This latest volume in the series surveys the prose to be found in six smaller collections of the Bodleian Library, University of Oxford: English miscellaneous, English poetry, English theology, Latin theology, Lyell, and the Radcliffe Trust.The manuscripts covered - including the largest in Middle English, the Vernon manuscript -provide a rich selection of Middle English prose classics: they catalogue a wealth of interesting material, texts on astronomy and heraldry; macaronic sermons;Lollard tracts; and a heretofore unnoticed fragment of Love's Mirror. In the lengthy critical introduction, Professor Hanna assesses the importance of Vernon as a record of religious prose, the relationship of 'the tradition' recorded in Vernon to other forms of religious prose, and the impulses underlying miscellanies designed to offer religious instruction. RALPH HANNAis Professor of English at University of California Riverside, and University Lecturer in Palaeography and Fellow of Keble College, University of Oxford. Professor RALPH HANNAteaches at the University of California at Riverside.
