TEAMS Medieval German Texts in Bilingual Editions

The Medieval German Texts in Bilingual Editions series is designed for classroom use in German and medieval studies, as well as for the more advanced scholars in fields adjacent to that of German literature: the historian, Latinist, theologian or romanist who wishes to extend her or his reading and research across those largely artificial borders that still divide medievalists unnecessarily.

Neidhart
The medieval German poet called Neidhart is one of the most important poets of his time. Set in the village among peasant maidens and their boorish male counterparts, Neidhart's satirical songs stand in marked contrast to courtly love song and enrich our understanding of medieval literary culture. This book presents for the first time annotated English translations of a substantial collection of songs attributed to this prolific poet. Its source is the thirteenth-century Riedegg manuscript, the oldest extensive collection of songs attributed to Neidhart. This book presents a representative survey of the songs in order to make this material accessible to a broad audience of students and scholars of medieval studies.

Usefull in teaching as they illustrate a great number of characteristic medieval ways of writing.
