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

Walsh's book should be . . . of considerable value in general to medievalists, comparatists, and those in related disciplines.

New England Classical Newsletter and Journal

Renaissance Quarterly

Peter Dronke, University of Cambridge

A superb volume, fully worthy of these famous but often misunderstood poems.

Janet M. Martin, Princeton University

Library Journal
While most people are familiar with the erotic lyrics from the Carmina Burana through the music of Carl Orff, few have had ready access to the original poems collected in the Codex Buranus. This edition presents about half of the erotic poems in a carefully annotated collection, which includes the Latin text, detailed notes and vocabulary, and literal prose translations. It also includes a valuable introductory essay, discussing the history of the text and its cultural and literary context, as well as a bibliography. Walsh (humanity studies, Univ. of Glasgow) has rendered a valuable service both to the student of medieval Latin and literature and the interested general reader.-- T.L. Cooksey, Armstrong State Coll., Savannah, Ga.
