The Electronic Exeter Anthology of Old English Poetry with CDROM (Exeter Medieval Texts and Studies) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Commonly referred to as The Exeter Book, this important anthology is the earliest and largest surviving book of vernacular poetry from Anglo-Saxon England. This edition on DVD will be an invaluable historical and literary acquisition for libraries and an indispensable reference work for medievalists and other scholars.
 
The DVD contains the revised second edition of The Exeter Anthology of Old English Poetry linked to a full-colour digital facsimile and images of various other related historical documents. Also included is a new codicological report on the manuscripts current binding. The images used are of an extremely high resolution; they often provide more information than is available from a physical examination of the manuscript itself.
 
The DVD is also available as a special package with a copy of the revised two-volume second edition in hardback (ISBN 9780859896306).
 
This edition includes many newly-discovered alterations to the poetic texts in addition to the four hundred new readings listed in the first edition. The Bibliography and Commentary have also been updated.

Book News Annotation:

Books for College Libraries, 3rd edition cites Selections of The Exeter Book. This DVD contains high-resolution color facsimile images of the complete manuscript with an electronic interface that allows scholars to search for specific words and phrases, and to zoom in to analyze details of the manuscript barely visible to the naked eye. Muir's critical edition of the Anglo-Saxon text, published in two volumes in 2000, is also included, along with a report by Nicholas Pickwoad on the manuscript's current binding, the full introduction to the 1933 printed facsimile, and an animated video clip recounting the manuscript's history. An audio dimension is provided by readings of selected poems in Old English and in Modern English translation; The Wanderer is among them. Distributed in North America by The David Brown Book Company. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
