Essentials of Early English

About the texts

This part of the book consists of a set of illustrative texts to accompany Chapters 3-5. The texts are divided into three sections: Section A (Old English Texts), Section B (Middle English Texts) and Section C (Early Modern English Texts). Texts spanning the transition between OE and ME, and between ME and EModE, are also included. For pedagogic reasons, the editorial principles adopted vary from text to text, and between sections.

Texts relate for the most part to those in standard editions and readers, with some modifications and emendations to enable them better to serve the purposes of beginners. Some in Section C are drawn from books printed while the authors of the texts in question were still alive or had died only shortly before.

Students will find it useful to supplement these texts with others in order to find their own examples. Particularly recommended as a source-book is Burnley 1992.

For references to grammatical structures, see the Thematic Index in Part III.
