Abstract:

For more than thirty years, A Guide to Old English has been the
standard introduction to Old English language and literature. This
updated sixth edition retains the structure and style of the popular
previous editions, and includes two new, much-requested texts: Wulf
and Eadwacer and Judith.


The book consists of two parts. Part one comprises an introduction to
the Old English language, including orthography and pronunciation,
inflexions, word formation, an authoritative section on syntax. This
is followed by an introduction to Anglo-Saxon studies, which discusses
language, literature, history, archaeology, and ways of life. Sound
changes are treated as they become relevant in understanding apparent
irregularities in inflexion. Part Two contains verse texts, most of
them complete, which fully reveal the range that Old English poetry
offers in mood, intensity, humor, and natural observation. Full
explanatory notes accompany all the texts, and a detailed glossary is
provided.

The new edition of this highly-acclaimed Guide will be welcomed by
teachers and by anyone wanting to gain a greater understanding and
enjoyment of the language and literature of the Anglo-Saxons.
