Overview

Walsh's book should be a vade mecum for anyone who would teach the Carmina Burana on any level and be of considerable value in general to medievalists, comparatists, and those in related disciplines.—New England Classical Newsletter and Journal

"Teachers, students, and any reader interested in medieval lyric will find this volume a clear and useful approach to intrinsically interesting texts.—Renaissance Quarterly

"The most scholarly and most helpful presentation of a group of these captivating lyrics that has yet appeared in English.—Peter Dronke, University of Cambridge

"A superb volume, fully worthy of these famous but often misunderstood poems. P. G. Walsh's unmatched erudition in Latin literature furnishes lucid grammatical explanations, incisive analysis of goliardic literary values and technique, and illuminating references to ancient and medieval parallels. His prose translations make the poems accessible also to those with little or no Latin.—Janet M. Martin, Princeton University
