Meier Helmbrecht. A Poem

LIONEL STEVENSON University of Southern California Meier Helmbrecht. A Poem. By Wernher der Gartenave. German E. Medizval Series, Section A, Volume 11. Edited by CHARLES GOUGH. Oxford: Basil Blackwell, 1942. Pp. xxxv 117. When Gierach brought out his edition of Der arme Heinrich in 1913, he listed previous editions with brief comment. O n an English edition by John G. Robertson he said, “Pauls Text etwas verschlechtert, mit Anderungen nach Haupt und Wackernagel.” I would hesitate to make a similar remark on Professor Gough’s edition of the Meier Helmbrecht. Yet I wish Professor Gough had given us more information about his text reconstruction. H e states that his plan was to get a text based on MS A , which he considers (with others) more reliable than M S 23. In his introductory remarks on text reconstruction, the editions of Haupt, Keinz, and Panzer are mentioned specifically (page xxx). I have checked Gough’s text against Haupt ( H ) and Panzer ( P ). Keinz was not available to me. Gough’s text is, by and large, P’s, with some variations according to H . Further exceptions are mentioned below.
