This collection is very handy for a class on Middle English romances, as you might guess. It contains a few of the ballads -- including one of my favourites -- with good glosses and notes, and like all Norton editions, it contains some essays on the topic as well. Very useful, worth the purchase if this is something you're interested in.

(If you just want to look at a couple of ballads, though, go here instead. They do glosses, and there's tons of texts available. I recommend The Wedding of Sir Gawain and Dame Ragnelle.) ( )

Preface
...
I would encourage anyone picking up Middle English Romances to follow the lead of Hammett's Continental Op and distinguish in its wholly traditional title a clutch of lies.
