Crux and Controversy in Middle English Textual Criticism
The enterprise of editing Middle Englishtexts - works produced before printing - raises and focuses these issues in an especially interesting form. In particular, controversy has raged about how best to resolve the textual problems presented by Piers Plowman andThe Canterbury Tales. This volumeaddresses many of the issues which face the editors of Middle English texts today.
