Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Significant Anglo-Saxon papers, with postscripts, illustrate advances in knowledge of life and culture of pre-Conquest England. Thomas Northcote Toller was the first professor of English Language at Manchester, where the annual Toller lecture commemorates his achievements. Selected lectures are gathered here, with supplementary material added by the authors to bring them up to date. In addition, the 2002 Toller Lecture, Peter Baker's study of Toller as a lexicographer, has been commissioned specially for this volume.

Synopsis:

Significant Anglo-Saxon papers, with postscripts, illustrate advances in knowledge of life and culture of pre-Conquest England. Manchester University has one of the liveliest Anglo-Saxon studies centres, which is now embarking on a joint programme of publications with Boydell & Brewer. This first volume of collected Toller lectures, the annual high profile lecture delivered by a leading Anglo-Saxonist, is both a record of the best scholarship in Anglo-Saxon studies of the last decade and a half, and a guide through the major advances in the knowledge of life and culture of pre-Conquest England. Contributors: Richard Bailey, Peter Baker, Dabney Anderson Bankert, Janet Bately, George Brown, Roberta Frank, Helmut Gneuss, Joyce Hill, David A. Hinton, Michael Lapidge, Audrey Meaney, Katherine O'Brien O'Keeffe, Joana Proud, Alexander Rumble.

Synopsis:

Thomas Northcote Toller, of the Bosworth-Toller Anglo-Saxon Dictionary, is one of the most influential but least known Anglo-Saxon scholars of the early twentieth century. The Centre for Anglo-Saxon Studies at Manchester, where Toller was the first professor of English Language, has an annual Toller lecture, delivered by an expert in the field of Anglo-Saxon Studies; this volume offers a selection from these lectures, brought together for the first time, and with supplementary material added by the authors to bring them up to date. They are complemented by the 2002 Toller Lecture, Peter Baker's study of Toller, commissioned specially for this book; and by new examinations of Toller's life and work, and his influence on the development of Old English lexicography. The volume is therefore both an epitome of the best scholarship in Anglo-Saxon studies of the last decade and a half, and a guide for the modern reader through the major advances in our knowledge of the life and culture of pre-Conquest England.Contributors: RICHARD BAILEY, PETER BAKER, DABNEY ANDERSON BANKERT, JANET BATELY, GEORGE BROWN, ROBERTA FRANK, HELMUT GNEUSS, JOYCE HILL, DAVID A. HINTON, MICHAEL LAPIDGE, AUDREY MEANEY, KATHERINE O'BRIEN O'KEEFFE, JOANA PROUD, ALEXANDER RUMBLE.
