summary
Heinrich Wittenwiler's Ring, written in a Swiss dialect and presented in English translation for the first time in this 1956 volume, is a comic-didactic and religious allegory that documents late medieval views on many aspects of literature, history, law and religion. Besides his translation of Ring, Jones adds an exposition on the text as well as a translation of the Middle Scots poem Colkelbie Sow with a comparative analysis of the two works.
