about

Circulated orally in a preliterate society, collected in volumes more than six centuries before the Norman conquest, Anglo-Saxon poetry is outstanding not only for its sophistication, but also for its mere survival to the present day. Anglo-Saxon Poetry is an anthology of prose translations of much of the surviving poetry. This comprehensive edition includes a bibliography, a checklist of extant Anglo-Saxon poems and an index.
