Guillaume de Deguileville, an important but unjustly neglected poet of the later Middle Ages, receives here a lucid, controlled, and eminently readable translation of the second volume of his widely-circulated Le Pèlerinage de la Vie Humaine. Especially welcome as an excellent example of medieval dream allergory, this work offers first rate poetry with an insight into medieval mental structures, including theology and monastic life. The clarity and accessibility of the translation, together with the detailed and accurate introduction, notes, and bibliography, make this an appropriate text for scholars as well as students and an original and welcome contribution to medieval studies.
