European Literature and the Latin Middle Ages

£19.99

Product description

"This is the sort of book which takes much of a man's lifetime to produce and which can be read again and again with profit and pleasure. In effect it is an analysis of medieval Latin literature as a major stage in the transition from the Graeco-Roman classics to the modern vernacular literatures. No forbidding catalogue of periods, authors, and works, but literary criticism and literary history by a thoughtful scholar at home in classical, medieval, and modern literature, this is a powerfully presented and richly informative study of medieval standards, values, assumptions and literary conventions."--The Virginia Quarterly Review.
This is an ex library copy albeit with minimal stamps or markings. The dust jacket is protected by a transparent plastic sleeve, but the jacket is chipped along the top edge of the front, it is also age soiled on the edges and spine. A library ref. in white has been marked on the lower spine of the binding, beneath the jacket.
Text block sound, text pages clean, text clear and the information within is invaluable.
