The Oxford Guide to Middle High German is the most comprehensive self-contained treatment of Middle High German available in English. It covers the language, literature, history, and culture of German in the period from 1050 to 1350 and is designed for entry-level readers, advanced study, teaching, and reference. The book includes a large sample of texts, not only from Classical works such as Erec, the Nibelungenlied, Parzival, and Tristan, but also from mystical writing, chronicles, and legal documents
Howard Jones is a Fellow and Lecturer in Linguistics at Keble College, Oxford. He teaches general linguistics, historical linguistics, and the history of German. His research focuses on the semantics of verbs in the Germanic languages (notably the categories of aspect, mood, tense, and voice) and on bible translation. Martin Jones is a Senior Research Fellow in the Department of German at King's College London, where he taught medieval German language and literature from 1968 until his retirement as Senior Lecturer in 2009. His publications range widely over the literature of the Middle High German period, with particular emphasis on the works of Hartmann von Aue and Wolfram von Eschenbach and on the themes of chivalry and warfare.
