I received an email a few hours ago from the New Chaucer Society, announcing the unveiling of METRO–Middle English Teaching Resources Online.  According to the release,

METRO is a virtual classroom designed to teach students how to read and
analyze Middle English texts. Through a series of self-testing exercises,
students are invited to explore the meter, grammar, syntax, diction, and
figural language used by a variety of Middle English poets. Currently,
METRO features Chaucer, the Gawain-poet, and the Wakefield Master, with
plenty of room for expansion. The site also offers resources for graduate
students seeking to learn the basics of manuscript editing.

After a few minutes’ “clicking about,” I’m quite excited by this site.  Good job, Harvard!  Gladly would I learn…
