Customer Review

on 30 May 2014
This book is brilliant and is particularly useful for anyone endeavouring to study the Anglo-Saxon/Old English tongue itself. The Old English language text is presented on the left-hand page, with the modern English rendering placed on the right-hand page, as you progress through the book. Rather than finding pretty ways to render the old text into modern text, such as that wonderful popularised translation by Seamus Heaney, this tome is particularly excellent in that it provides a running word-for-word literal translation throughout, of great assistance to anyone looking to get their teeth into the mechanics and workings of the Old English language.
