Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Reading Old English Texts focuses on the critical methods currently being used and developed for reading and analyzing writings in Old English. It is the first collection of its kind in the field and is a timely book, given the explosion of interest in the theory, method and practice of critical reading in recent years. Each chapter engages with current work on Old English texts from a particular methodological stance. The authors are all expert, but are also concerned with explaining their method and its application to a broad undergraduate and graduate readership.
