Excerpt from Patience: An Alliterative Version of Jonah
The edition of Pearl by the writer, in 1891, revived interest in these poems, and in the school of poetry to which they belong. The late Dr. Morris generously expressed the hope that the editor would turn his attention t... o the other poems. With a view to a definitive edition, he has since then worked at the problems of text and interpretation? The present issue of Patience is based on a fresh transcript from the manuscript, together with a collotype facsimile.
