Middle English Compendium Bibliography
1100-1500 The Middle English Compendium (MEC), developed by the Humanities Text Initiative at the University of Michigan, provides access to and interconnectivity among three major Middle English electronic resources: an electronic version of the Middle English Dictionary (Main PE 679 .M54), a HyperBibliography of Middle English prose and verse, and a full-text corpus of Middle English prose and verse. This covers words and their usage in the English language from 1100-1500. In this database the text is searchable. The HyperBibliography of Middle English includes all the Middle English materials which are cited in the Middle English Dictionary. While not an exhaustive bibliography, it is the most comprehensive single list of these materials available. Titles have been adopted from Manual of the Writings in Middle English wherever possible, and are followed by the MED stencil (short-title) in brackets. The Corpus of Middle English Prose and Verse currently contains 42 texts, but this will grow over time. It is fully searchable; texts may be searched in individually, in user-designated groups, or collectively.
