YORK MEDIEVAL TEXTS General Editors: Elizabeth Salter and Derek Pearsall To be published March MALORY: THE MORTE DARTHUR Edited by D. S. Brewer Boards 25s. net approx. Paper 12s. 6d. net approx. There is little need specially to commend The Morte Darthur. It has been known for centuries as a superb story of adventure and love, honour and betrayal. The Introduction summarizes what one must know about the Arthurian story and Arthurian scholarship in order to understand and appreciate Malory's work; but the main emphasis is on the writing itself, which still deserves more literary study. The sections on Style, Structure and The Tragedy of the Honourable Society are original contributions to the criticism of The Morte Darthur, THE WAKING DREAM A Study of Coleridge's Poetry Patricia Adair 42s. net The author believes that the minor poems often throw unexpected light upon the great poems, and considers that the early notebooks, contemporaneous with his best poetry, bring the reader closer than anything else to an understanding of Coleridge's creative genius. THE STRATFORD-UPON-AVON LIBRARY General Editors: .Tohn Russell Brown and Bernard Harris No. 3. ELIZABETHAN NARRATIVE VERSE Edited by Nigel Alexander 42s. net This is an anthology of longer poems published in English between 1560 and 1610. It is an old spelling edition although the merely typographical features of that spelling have been modernized to prevent unnecessary difficulty in reading the texts. It has a critical introduction and textual and explanatory notes. No. 4. THOMAS DEKKER Selected Prose Writings Edited by E. D. Pendry 50s. net This volume contains a major part of Dekker's prose writing. He is a stylist, essentially a writer of artifice: his command of convention and the sheer variation of style and form in his work make it highly entertaining. The texts have been carefully presented in the clearest manner. For each piece the editor has aimed at a mean between clumsy hyperconservatism and brash over- modernization. THE STRATFORD-UPON-AVON STUDIES General Editors: John Russell Brown and Bernard Harris No. 10. AMERICAN THEATRE This volume presents American achievement to readers on both sides of the Atlantic. Ten critics and scholars have collaborated for this study of American theatre. The aim is to provide not one view but several, to use different approaches, to concentrate attention on individual writers, on influences, on ideological and social conditions, on theatrical idioms and on theatrical history. EDWARD ARNOLD 41 Maddox Street, London, W. 1 [i front] THE ARTISTRY OF SHAKESPEARE'S PROSE Brian Vickers The first detailed stud/ of the use of prose in the plays, and a work of real originality in Shakespearian studies. Dr. Vickers carefully defines the differentiation which Shakespeare made between prose and verse. He then proceeds—by means of analysis of imagery, and linguistic and rhetorical structure—to show the development of Shakespeare's use of prose. 75s A COMMENTARY ON SHAKESPEARE'S RICHARD III W. H. Clemen Professor Clemen has composed a model commentary to Richard III which serves as a general introduction to Shakespeare's early dramatic art and as an object lesson in the methodology of criticism. 55s POETS OF ACTION INCORPORATING ESSAYS FROM THE BURNING ORACLE G. Wilson Knight The essays printed here include all those from The Burning Oracle except two on Shake- speare and Pope, which are now available in other volumes. The book also includes Pro- fessor Knight's study of Milton's politics, 'Chariot of Wrath', and his Byron foundation lecture, 'Byron's Dramatic Prose'. It thus forms an absorbing study of the narrative, or 'action' poets, Spenser, Milton, Swift and Byron. 50s EARLY MIDDLE ENGLISH LITERATURE R. M. Wilson First published in 1939, this excellent book remains the introduction to the subject. Professor Wilson gives an immense amount of information on the literary background and makes detailed analyses of The Ancrene Riwle and The Owl and the Nightingale.
