Overview

The English poems of the British Library Manuscript, Harley 913, were written in Ireland in the early fourteenth century. Sometimes called 'The Kildare Poems,' these texts show considerable influences of the Irish culture in which they were cradled. They are also full of ideas, themes, and images that are part of the Western European Christian tradition and especially close in affinity to the acknowledged works of Franciscan friars. They are a unique witness to English literature in Ireland at this period. Each poem has a facing-page translation and a commentary.
