This assumption itself derives from certain wider beliefs about the relationship between the genres of medieval romance and the narrative ballad more generally. I, 98, in discussion of Child ballad no. Well known examples of such romance-ballad pairings are the Middle English romance of Sir Orfeo extant by c. III, I, He argues instead for oral tradition as the independent source for all four of these Horn narratives.

    The real question that has troubled many scholars of the history of balladry is, according to Nygard, whether the entire genre of the narrative ballad owes its origins to romance, or merely blends with it occasionally Nygard seems to favour the latter scenario, as does Child, but does not feel that there is enough evidence to make a definitive statement.

    The Three Ravens (Medieval English ballad)

    Richard Firth Green has mounted a more recent argument, from English evidence, for the deep medieval roots of narrative balladry Courthope — is an enticing one, but in truth the only evolution we can vouch for is one of literary taste for a specific genre, not of the genre itself Although he does not mean to suggest by this that romances immediately ceased to be read, the overriding impression remains one of a kind of evolutionary progression from romance to ballad.

    In the case of the other romance and ballad pairings cited above, however, at least one extant copy of the romance substantially predates the earliest known version of the ballad. It is clearly time to reexamine the dating evidence for each text. The five known extant copies of the Short Version — all from the second half of the eighteenth century — represent four separate prints, two certainly and a third probably from Scotland: textual variation between them is almost entirely confined to punctuation, occasional spelling variants and the odd missing line.

    Since almost every line of this Short Version is drawn verbatim from the Long Version, and those very few that are not have a distinctly modern feel to them e. It thus need not be considered further in this study of the origins of Roswall and Lillian. A closely related version represented by two eighteenth-century Newcastle copies extant in four copies:. It is a paginary reprint — albeit with several errors introduced — of White. Links between all three Long Version texts are readily explained. John White, who was working as a printer in Newcastle upon Tyne , went into partnership with Thomas Saint from — from which date both names appear on their prints —and died in Plomer ; Hunt 95 , after which Thomas Saint continued to print under his own name until his own death in Hunt 81; Plomer, Bushnell, and Dix Part of the incentive for Newcastle printers to produce so much Scottish material was doubtless the Scottish market.

    Roswall is by no means the only Scottish text to have ricocheted back and forth across the border. When might Roswall have been composed? Neither physical witnesses nor indirect references to it predate the Edinburgh print. MS , pp. Coles, T. Vere and W. Gilbertson, [].

    Unlike Roswall , however, the evidence for the existence of this ballad pre-dates the extant witnesses. The Elizabethan writer Everard or Edward Guilpin born c. Both of these early citations are quoted by Hales and Furnivall vol. These references are to Clariodus and his beloved Meliades from the Older Scots romance of Clariodus. Although Clariodus is based on the fifteenth-century Burgundian romance of Cleriadus et Meliadice , there is no evidence whatsoever that the author of Roswall knew works in French himself or expected his audience to do so: this must be a reference to the Older Scots Clariodus whose composition is securely dated between at the widest.
