Serious and detailed intro to language and history, but readable scholarship for serious beginners and rusty old returners like me. Highly recommended.

This is a book for those who have a serious interest in the Anglo-Saxons and their language, but who are unable to pursue an academic course in the subject. Bruce Mitchell is one of the leading Old English scholars of his generation and a champion of his subject. His enthusiasm and his friendly and encouraging presence are felt on every page. He has the rare quality of combining authority with complete absence of condescension.

Mitchell writes cleraly and with humour of the OE grammar and literature of the Anglo-Saxon England. For a person whose mother tongue is not English this is a demanding book when it comes to translate the OE parts into the Modern English. The basic knowledge of grammar is a must.The richness of the every day history mixed up from war and religion shows parallel with the literary examples and photographs the book provides.
