Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Richard J. Kelly's The Anglo-Saxon World is an exploration of the language, writings and culture found in the Anglo-Saxon period (c. 500 - 1100) and an examination of the relationships that exist between all three.

Placing the Age in sharp historical context, including chapters on the Roman Britain and Norman periods that preceded and succeeded it, The Anglo-Saxon World provides an unintimidating introduction for students to the fundamentals of Anglo-Saxon language, history, poetry, prose and artistic production.

With elements such as a consideration of Anglo-Saxon linguistic features and dialects, a close literary study of Beowulf, an in-depth analysis of hagiographical writings and contemplation of metalwork and architecture of the time, The Anglo-Saxon World illuminates the period in question, challenging and encouraging the reader to read further into these subjects with new enthusiasm and confidence in their understanding of the basics.

Synopsis:
