Bibliography of works from 1994-2008 on British Library MS Cotton Nero A.x. (art.3) and on the Middle English poems Pearl, Cleanness, Patience, and Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.

The bibliography covers items published about the manuscript itself or any of the four poems during a fifteen year period from 1994 to 2008. It is currently a working handlist for the project team, but we intend to expand it into a full annotated bibliography with features similar to those provided by the Blanch and Andrew bibliographies. Although we've done our best to find entries, we have been dependent so far to some extent on other published bibliographies, especially the MLA Bibliography and the International Medieval Bibliography.

Users who notice errors or omissions would be helping us considerably if they brought them to our attention--please email the project leader, Murray McGillivray, at We are particularly interested in locating items not listed here.

Note: The bibliography is organized as a list of items alphabetical by author. It is provided here for the convenience of others beyond the working team; however, you must be aware that in a few cases, marked with an asterisk, the bibliographical details are unverified.
