"Howe's book is of value not only to scholars of medieval English literature but highly suitable for mythographers, cultural historians, anthropologists, and theologians. Documentation is thorough, and most footnotes are annotated; the bibliography is exhaustive. This study complements Howe's previous scholarship and assumes, by its authority and integrity of presentation, the status of a standard in contemporary scholarship relevant to Anglo-Saxon England." - Renaissance and Reformation"
