Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Old English classical prose may lay claim to an importance and distinction equal to that of Old English poetry, but whereas the latter is the subject of enthusiastic study, the former, and much larger corpus has suffered neglect. The annual bibliographies of the Modern Language Association, for example, list only a few articles on the major prose writers of the period over the last several years, and many of these are limited to a study of source material. Ker's Catalogue may be an eloquent witness to the influence and importance of Aelfric, yet in modern times there has appeared but one critical book on his achievement. The Clemoes-Godden critical book on his achievement.
