Title: Beginning Old English
Written By: Carole A. Hough
John Corbett
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/newsearch/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403993491
Description:

This is a simple introduction to Old English for students with little or no
linguistic knowledge. Unlike other textbooks on the subject, Beginning Old
English focuses on the explanation and demonstration of how the language
works, using accessible illustrations from simplified Old English texts and
showing how many features of present-day English have their roots in this
stage of the language. It also includes long extracts from popular Old
English works for use in the classroom.
