This is a major new reader of Old English, the language spoken by the Anglo-Saxons before the Norman Conquest. Designed both for beginning and for more advanced students, it breaks new ground in two ways, first in its range of texts, and second in the degree of annotation it offers. The fifty-six prose and verse texts include the established favourites such as The Battle of Maldon and King Alfred’s Preface to his Pastoral Care, but also others which have not before been readily available, such as a complete Easter homily, Aelfric’s life of Saint Aethelthryth and all forty-six Durham proverbs. Headnotes establish the literary and historical contexts for the works that are represented, and reflect the rich cultural variety of Anglo-Saxon England. Modern English word glosses and explanatory notes are provided on the same page as the text. Other features include a reference grammar and a comprehensive glossary. • Fifty-six texts, including a wide range of prose and verse passages • Same-page annotation and glossing of words and phrases • Glossary and reference grammar at the back Contents Introduction: the writing and pronunciation of Old English; The texts: 1. Teaching and learning (ten texts); 2. Keeping a record (nine texts); 3. Spreading the word (nine texts); 4. Example and exhortation (nine texts); 5. Telling tales (seven texts); 6. Reflection and lament (12 texts); Manuscripts and emendations; Reference grammar; Glossary; Guide to terms; Index of people, places and topics. Printed Pages: 566.
