Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Monsters, erotic desire, spiritual Angst, the adventures of saints and knights, the harshness and joy of nature – Treharne's anthology makes vivid and accessible early medieval literature in all its vitality and variety. The effect is to challenge notions of how modern literature constructs reality." Peter Brown, University of Kent at Canterbury

"Old and Middle English c.890-c.1400: An Anthology is a valuable seminar resource. It contains an imaginative selection of canonical and non-canonical material, and can be used both to facilitate group discussion and to encourage independent student research." Helen Moore, Oxford University

"The broad scope of this anthology, including its presentation of Old English texts with the original and translation on facing pages as well as its focus upon the manuscript contexts of the texts, is something that sets it apart from other such collections and makes it an ideal choice for survey courses in medieval English literature." Stephen R. Reimer, University of Alberta
