They are both fun to read and deeply informative about daily life, religion, markets, and multiple social groups in the twelfth century. The comprehensive thematic guide allows readers to locate tales by subject matter, making this collection of 100 narratives ideal for classroom use."

     "Seven Myths of Native American History will provide undergraduates and general readers with a very useful introduction to Native America past and present. Jentz identifies the origins and remarkable staying power of these myths at the same time he exposes and dismantles them."
    Colin G. Calloway, Dartmouth College

  7. The Nibelungenlied: with The Klage

    Edited and Translated, with an Introduction, William T. Whobrey

    The Nibelungenlied: with The Klage

    Forthcoming - March 2018

    "Professor Whobrey's masterful translation of the Nibelungenlied and the Klage into modern English has fulfilled a desideratum that has been long in coming. For the first time, students of medieval literature have an excellent English rendition of what is considered by some the greatest and most unique epic of the German Middle Ages, complemented, under the same cover, by the first 'commentary' on the Nibelungenlied, the Klage. . . . This is a work that deserves—and is likely destined—to become the standard translation into English of both the Nibelungenlied and the Klage for decades to come." —Winder McConnell, Professor Emeritus, University of California, Davis
