Description

First published in 1900, this Reader uses four manuscripts from the British Museum and Corpus Christi College Cambridge to present a thorough introduction along with a dual-language edition of the text. The original manuscripts, as Herzfeld demonstrates, are of varying qualities and comprise of the Anglian, West Saxon, Kentish and Mercian dialects. The re-edited text is presented alongside historical remarks, criticism of the manuscript, the text’s ultimate date and place of origin and an exploration of its potential sources.

Table of Contents

1. Historical Remarks. 2. Criticism of the MSS. 3. Date and Place of Origin. 4. The Sources. 5. Text. 6. Addenda and Corrigenda
