Product Description

Review

"A great resource for students grappling with translating the works most often encountered in an introductory Old English course, as well as for those reading them in translation. Liuzza provides an elegant introductory essay suggesting the challenges and joys of interpreting literature written a millennium ago." -- Jonathan Wilcox, University of Iowa, editor of the Old English Newsletter

"The essays in this stimulating collection are thought-provoking, never dull, and occasionally controversial. They represent some of the most exciting work in the field today." -- Daniel Donoghue, Harvard University

"This invaluable volume fills an obvious gap in the field by offering a series of first-rate essays that introduce students to the culture, historiography, and literature of Anglo-Saxon England. Liuzza's introduction to the book is written with his characteristic lucidity, directness, and wit." -- Nicholas Howe, The Ohio State University

Great Collection in Anglo-Saxon Studies Dec 9 2011
By Thorrin Jonsson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For the Book, this is an amazing deal, as it is large and packed full with many useful essays for the learning medievalist and Anglo-Saxon Scholar, and would be recommended to be read after Cambridge's Companion to Old English Literature. The content is not an issue here; but I realise this amazing price might have to do with material, as my book arrived with SIGNIFICANT page damage,with dents along the top edge etc, as if it was smashed around quite a bit; yet I know this has nothing to do with the shipping, becuase the package contained two other books which are in perfect Amazon-expected condition - it seems these sales are for books damaged in certain ways before being sold - yet the damage is not too bad, especially for the price I'd say

Thus be aware! You MIGHT be buying a new book at Half-Price books' quality (and price) more or less, which isn't exactly a bad thing; just would've been nice to have noticed beforehand, I still would have bought it either way, and I suggest anyone to take advantage of this offer

Thorrin
