This is the first critical edition of The Wars of Alexander, a Middle English poem dating from the late 14th or early 15th century and based on the popular Latin story of Alexander, Historia de Preliis. Taking account of the two different manuscripts in which parts of the poem appear, the relationship of the poem to its source, and the poet's metrical practice, the editors include an introduction, critical variants, and full explanatory notes and a glossary.
