Two Early Renaissance Bird Poems: The Harmony of Birds, The Parliament of Birds
Associated University Presses, 1984 - 113 páginas
This volume presents annotated texts of two poems that have not appeared in a previous critical edition. They are specimens of noncourtly minor poetry; the bird convention which links them is formulaic rather than experimental, their mode is predictable, their outlook decidedly conventional. A publication of the Renaissance English Text Society.
