The Middle English Metrical Paraphrase of the Old Testament
The paraphrase is a remarkable artifact of the Chaucerian period, one that can reveal a great deal about vernacular biblical literature in Middle English, about understandings of the Bible, about the environment in which the Lollards and other reformers worked, perceived roles of women in history and in society and composition of medieval drama.

Siege of Jerusalem
The poem chronicles a historical war, and it is this historical quality that must stand out: the poem not only has resonances of the bloodshed that battle inevitably brings, but it also is, in a very literal sense, history. That is to say, the war is over. The vengeance of Jesus has been accomplished.
