Through its contextualizing introduction, notes, and gloss, this classroom-friendly edition of Middle English lyric poetry makes the wide variety of Marian poems available to students of all levels. The poems selected for this volume provide a sampling of the rich tradition of Marian devotion as expressed in Middle English. They range widely in form, tone, and aesthetic quality in how they relate the iconic moments from Mary’s life—the Annunciation, Nativity, and her experience of Christ’s passion, for instance—as well as in their variety of praises for the Queen of Heaven. Taken together, the poems express the full range of a people’s effort to voice anxieties and joys through Mary.
