A section on lyrics is a new addition. The translations, from Latin, French, German, Spanish, Welsh, Middle English, and Italian, were freshly done for the original anthologies and have now been updated. Complete texts have been presented wherever possible.

Loomis, "Arthur in Geoffrey of Monmouth"; William W. Kibler, "Chr tien de Troyes: Lancelot, or The Knight of the Cart";James J. Wilhelm, "Selected Lyrics"; Marianne E.
