In this bilingual edition, renowned poet Fleur Adcock provides verse translations of the complete Latin work of two of the most brilliant poets of the twelfth century. Included are poems on religious topics, depictions of low life, and the Archpoet's famous "Confession." The work is characterized by its touches of satire and coarse realism, features that Fleur Adcock captures superbly in her renderings. This unique resource will appeal not only to medievalists but to all lovers of poetry.

Industry Reviews

"We can all be grateful that these marvelous poems are now available to a much larger audience of Latinists than was the case before, and that they are accompanied by a nearly flawless translation that I hope will give them currency among the wide general audience they deserve." Paul Pascal, Bryn Mawr Medieval Review
