INTRODUCTION: THE MIDDLE ENGLISH ROMANCES
Since English medieval literature was first seriously studied, scholars have been in the habit of separating a certain group of narratives from the vast assortment of Middle English verse, and bracketing them together as romances.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0710062400, Hardcover)

First published in English in 1968, this book provides a critical guide to the wide field of the Middle English Romances and gives a helpful survey of the contemporary state of scholarship. Dr Mehl traces the development of Middle English Romances from thee thirteenth to the end of the fourteenth century, and interprets a number of these romances. The emphasis is literary, on their form and dominant themes rather than source-material or language.
