About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1926, and first published as this second edition in 1935, this volume was created with the intention of bringing some of the most interesting passages in Anglo-Saxon prose and poetry within the range of the beginner. The volume is chiefly comprised of passages from The Chronicle and Beowulf. These passages are presented in normalised text to increase accessibility, and are accompanied by copious notes and a simple glossary. This is a concise and highly readable book that will be of value to anyone with an interest in Old English language and literature.
