Editorial Reviews

Review

"The cultural breadth of the anthology's selections create a rich linguistic, historical, and cultural overview of one of the most long-lived forms of poetry known today. The poetry itself is fresh and appealing in its own right and Professor Kinck's translations capture the sense of the original in spare and vivid modern English translations that avoid both archaisms and jargon. Professor Klinck wears her immense erudition lightly in the useful, clear introduction and select bibliography, both of which orient the novice reader well without short-changing those already knowledgeable in the field. This excellent anthology will appeal to a large audience of students and teachers in the humanities and interpretive social sciences at a wide range of colleges and universities (perhaps even some high schools)."--Ann Marie Rasmussen, Associate Professor of German, Duke University

Although it's a fairly slim volume, its breadth is quite wide, including the standard periods like ancient greece and medieval france, but also some less-than-standard, such as medieval ireland and islamic spain. On the one hand, the best thing about this work is all non-English works are included in parallel-text format, giving the original language with a translation; on the other hand, my only complaint is that the Middle English texts are not translated fully, and only certain difficult words are translated, which not only makes the page look fragmentary, it also overestimates how easily the originals would be able to be read. Overall, a very worthwhile volume.

i am researching music by women. This book was helpful in some ways but included a lot of work by men. Also disappointing was the fact that even when music existed, it was not included.
