The preparation for print and web publication of fifteen to seventeen volumes of medieval literary texts, focused on the 13th to 16th centuries. (36 months)

The Middle English Text Series (METS) is an ongoing project, now in its 21st year. 75 volumes have been published. This proposal requests funding that will produce 15 to 17 more volumes. Above all else, the purpose of METS is to make available for scholarly use reliable editions of Middle English literature deemed essential for literary and historical investigation. The focus of this project is upon literature from the 13th to the early 16th centuries that complements the better-known canonical authors and reaches to the boundaries of what was rapidly becoming a considerable corpus of vernacular literature and the beginnings of English literary study. Given its print and online formats the Series has demonstrably enhanced humanist inquiry of English and Anglo-Norman culture worldwide--from France, Italy and Germany to China, Korea, India, Australia and New Zealand.
