This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1904 edition. Excerpt: ... Their arguments, however, have not succeeded in carrying conviction. The last of the poems in this list is unanimously identified as the Pistil of Susan (ed. F. J. Amours, Scottish auit. Poems, Scot. Text Soc'y, 1897). As to the other two poems, however, scholars have not come to any general agreement. The Gret Gest, according to Sir F. Madden, is the alliterative Marie Arthure of the Thornton ms. (ed. Geo. G. Perry, E. E. T. S., 1865). This is also the view of Trautmann ("Ueber Huchown und Seine Werke," Anglia, i), of Mr. Gollancz (Pearl, p. xliv) and of Mr. Amours (op. cit, p. lvi). On the other hand, Morris (Early Eng. auit. Poems, p. vi) rejected Huchown's authorship of the Morte Arthure on the ground that the dialect of this poem, though Northumbrian, is not Scottish. In 1883 Dr. H. Luebke (The Aunters of Arthur at the Tern Wathelan, Berlin, p. 30) also expressed the opinion that Huchown was not the author of the Morte Arthure. More recently, Dr. P. C. Hoyt in an unpublished dissertation (The Anters of Arther, Harvard Univ., 1902) has pointed out that the contents of this poem do not correspond to the description of the Orel Gest in Wyntoun. Opinion as to the Avmtyre off Gawane, the second in Wyntoun's list, is similarly divided. Guest's and Madden's identification of this poem as Sir Gawayne and the Green Knight has been discarded by later scholars generally. In 1877 Trautmann (Anglia, I, pp. 142-3) suggested that the words of Wyntoun, "the Gret Gest off Arthure and the Awntyre off Gawane, ' are to be taken together as the description of a single poem, the Morte Arthure. This explanation is accepted by Mr. Gollancz. On the other hand, Mr. Amours (op. cit., pp. lvii-lxviii) argues that the poem referred to by Wyntoun is the Aumtyrs...
