About the author
Ralph Hanna, III, is Professor of English at the University of California, Riverside. As the reports make clear, he is a leading authority on Middle English manuscripts.
"Ralph Hanna has no peer in Middle English textual studies. . . . This is a wholly original and exciting work, unlike any other available from any book or scholar I know of."
—Anne Middleton, University of California, Berkeley
"This book is important and valuable for many kinds of readers. . . . Hanna challenges us to participate in the textual mapping of manuscript culture in England before Chaucer was canonized as the center. . . . The volume also has tremendous potential for introducing our students to manuscript culture."
