'The scrupulous painstakingness with which Burrow has gone about his textual task and the equally scrupulous honesty with which he draws our attention to the limits of what can be done by way of reconstruction still constitute find models for textual scholarship. And text is not all - the introduction, notes, and excursuses of this edition are informative across a much wider range' -The Review of English StudiesThomas Hoccleve's `Series', written c.1420 was edited for EETS in 1892. This is a new edition of the first two sections and glosses the poems more fully than before. The introduction presents new findings about Hoccleve, whose poems have attracted much attention in recent years.

`There has... been both a need for a properly edited text of the poems, and an opportunity for an intellectually fascinating experiment in textual criticism, an experiment which can be controlled and verified to a degree perhaps unparalleled in the craft. Burrow has fulfilled the need, and taken the further opportunity to provide excellent new notes.' Stephen Medcalf, Times Literary Supplement, Friday 2nd March 2001. `Burrow's edition does not merely collate the surviving manuscripts... and adopt the best readings, and therein lies its strength and innovation.' John Marlin
