I never remember what I wanted for Xmas. So I am going to update on my blog. Feel free to send me any of them.
Dover has a wonderful set of thrift editions of older works for anywhere from $1 to $3. However, I ordered those already that I am sure I want. But they also have a book of 116 watercolors by William Blake illustrating Thomas Gray's poems. It is $25.
Then there's The Medieval Stage. 960 pages for the literature teacher to use as a handbook, perhaps. Haven't seen it so I don't know how usable it is.
Also, The Wandering Scholars of the Middle Ages, which is supposed to be an excellent reference book.
But, if I had to pick one from the last two or this, it would be this one Medieval Literature in Translation. You would think I'd read all the literature I'd want like that, since it was my main field in my master's. But I did Old English as my minor field in my doctorate. It's been a while since I've studied Medieval Lit. Normally I don't like a book quite this long (1094 pages) because it is hard to hold, but as a reference I think it might be quiet good.
