This website consists of a set of readings of illustrative texts to accompany chapters 3 - 5 inclusive of Jeremy Smith's Essentials of Early English. The texts are divided into three Sections: Section A (Old English Texts), Section B (Middle English Texts) and Section C (Early Modern English Texts). However, it should be noted that texts spanning the transition between OE and ME, and between ME and EModE, are also included. For pedagogic reasons, the editorial principles adopted vary from text to text, and between sections.
