A Book Of Old English Ballads By George Wharton Edwards

A Book Of Old English Ballads

George Wharton Edwards


Available in PDF, epub, and Kindle ebook. This book has 113 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1896.

Description

This collection of ballads contains some of the best known English folk lyrics. It should be noted that 'Old English' in this case doesn't mean 'Anglo-Saxon'; strictly speaking these are written in late Middle or early Modern English. This makes them accessible, even enjoyable, for a modern audience. Many of these are from the Scottish border, and deal with clashes between the English and Scots in historical times. Others are set in an idealized 'Old England', including three ballads of Robin Hood.
