Reviews
Review Quotes
"The appearance of a revised edition of Malcolm Andrew and Ronald Waldron's The Poems of The Pearl Manuscript is very welcome. This new text, an updating of the 1987 edition (itself a revision of the original 1978 publication), allows the editors to update the notes in the light of recent scholarship and generally to streamline the layout of the text ...The bibliography has also been updated, while a number of older works have been discreetly removed from the lists. Such changes keep the edition abreast of recent developments in the field and mean that it is likely to remain the best single-volume edition of the Gawain Poet's works for some time to come." The Year's Work in English Studies , March 1999
"Likely to remain the best single-volume edition of the Gawain Poet's works for some time to come." The Year's Work in English Studies, Third Edition
"A single-volume scholarly edition, with notes and glossary, of the four great poems, Pearl, Cleanness, Patience and Sir Gawain and the Green Knight has long been needed . . . Malcolm Andrew and Ronald Waldron have made an excellent job of it; re-reading the poems in conjunction with their sensible well-pointed comments has enhanced my understanding in several respects. The volume will deservedly achieve the status of a standard collected edition." -- The Times Higher Educational Supplement
