Summary

The seventh edition of this popular introduction to Old English language and literature retains the general structure and style of previous editions, but has been updated, and includes two new, much-requested texts: the Cotton Gnomes and Wulfstan's Sermo Lupia ad Anglos - and two new appendices: A List of Linguistic Terms Used in This Book and The Moods of Old English.

  • Provides a range of helpful pedagogical tools: a map of Anglo-Saxon England, notes, a glossary, indexes to Part I, and a general introduction to Anglo-Saxon studies.
  • Contains a special "How to Use this Guide" section, to aid both self-study and classroom use.
