  • The Pearl-Poet (Twayne's English Authors, #64) By Charles Moorman Professor Moorman s book is the first critical work to deal exclusively with the works of an anonymous fourteenth century author credited with the authorship of four striking poems Pearl, an elegy on the death of the poet s daughter, Purity, a retelling of several Old Testament stories illustrating the virtue of chastity, Patience, a lively rendition of the tale of Jonah,Professor Moorman s book is the first critical work to deal exclusively with the works of an anonymous fourteenth century author credited with the authorship of four striking poems Pearl, an elegy on the death of the poet s daughter, Purity, a retelling of several Old Testament stories illustrating the virtue of chastity, Patience, a lively rendition of the tale of Jonah, and the popular Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, the best English Arthurian romance.In dealing with the poems as a group rather than as individual poems, Mr Moorman settles upon the moral and ethical issues dealt with by the poet as providing thematic unity within the poet s works, and demonstrates that the poet is everywhere concerned with the problem of man s disobedience to God s plan, and the impurity of life which stems from that disobedience.In the course of this examination, Mr Moorman is careful to review the various theories of authorship, source material, and purpose which have dominated the previous work on the Pearl poet Where they are necessary to an understanding of the poet, medieval concepts, especially those of theology and chivalry, have been explained.The Pearl Poet thus provides a much needed general introduction to the works of an author who is, next to Chaucer, the most widely read English author of the fourteenth century.
