Overview

Inside Old English: Essays in Honour of Bruce Mitchell gives readers a comprehensive insight into the world of Old English.

Consisting of a series of original essays written by prominent specialists in the field, Inside Old English enables readers to engage with the literary, cultural, intellectual, religious and historical discourses of Old English. It gives them an appreciation of the relationship between Old English authors and scribes, and of how language and usage have changed and developed over time, thus helping them to understand the problems modern-day scholars face in interpreting and editing Old English texts.

Each of the contributors writes in a straightforward and authoritative style, drawing out connections between different contexts and pointing readers towards the essential secondary literature for each topic.
