Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"As a means of aiding students to focus on particular aspects of Old English literature, this can hardly be bettered, and Donoghue's close textual analyses and continued attention to Old English words and phrases are themselves an excellent example to beginners learning how to deal with these texts."
