About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1919, this book draws on Anglo-Saxon texts overlooked by previous compilations 'to represent as many sides as we could of the life of our forefathers' and also presents an aid to students of varying levels. Combining both prose and poetry texts from early West Saxon prose onwards, and with a detailed glossary and notes, this book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the Anglo-Saxon language.
