These readings are recorded performances of Middle English texts dating from 1350-1500. All readings are performed by students at Ursinus College, either constructed as class assignments or part of independent study research. The goal of these projects is two-fold: first, to support student understanding of Middle English prosody, and second, to create resources for other students and teachers to use in classrooms. Students are mentored by Dr. Kara McShane of the department of English, and questions can be directed to Kara McShane.

Where available (and unless otherwise noted), readings will follow the editions of works produced by the Middle English Texts Series.
