For students of Middle English, Malcolm Andrew’s and Ronald Waldron’s The Poems of the Pearl Manuscript has been the key edition of the four Pearlpoems for over thirty years. This volume includes the first print edition of the English prose translations of the poem, which were previously only available on a CD-ROM that accompanied the revised edition of the poems. The new prose translations are based faithfully on Andrew and Waldron’s new fifth edition of The Poems of the Pearl Manuscript—and by using prose in lieu of verse, the authors have ensured that the translations remain as close and accurate to the original as possible. Aimed at the student of medieval English literature, these translations can also be used as a means of checking the accuracy of students’ own renditions of the originals—making this a key text for university courses and the interested general reader of Middle English.
