"An immense amount of very skillful, disciplined, and learned effort has gone into the production of this work. I was impressed by Klinck's down-to-earth, commonsense approach. She presents an honest, judicious, conservative, and thorough reconsideration of the editorial problems raised by a number of Old English texts. Canada has become a world centre for Old English studies. This book belongs to our contribution to an important field." John Tucker, Department of English, University of Victoria. "Thorough and effective ... Klinck is unquestionably a specialist on this subject and knowledgeable about Anglo-Saxon literature in general. What she has produced could be described as an encyclopedia of the textual and critical work done on these poems. I find this work to be a sound, competent, highly informative contribution to scholarship." Martin Puhvel, Department of English, McGill University.
