This version provides, for the 1st time, the whole oeuvre of the Pearl poet with either the unique heart English works and whole verse translations. Poet and student Casey Finch makes use of anapestic tetrameters (and iambic tetrameter for Pearl) in his translations instead of the accented tetrameters of the originals, therefore attaining the rhythmic regularity the poems may have displayed whilst played to track, as they absolutely have been intended to be. Finch's translations are revealed dealing with the easiest smooth variants of the poems, these of Malcolm Andrew and Ronald Waldron and of Clifford Peterson.
