Once again available in paperback, Quirk and Wrenn's Old English Grammar is a convenient reference tool to complement readings in Old English.

The authors provide a clear overview of Late West Saxon, with notes that open up the complexities of the language for those who wish to pursue them. The supplemental bibliography added to this edition by Susan Deskis reflects the most relevant recent contributions to the study of Old English.
