    An impressive collection of Old English readings with many useful glosses and explanations There is a grammar included, making this a self contained introduction to the language albeit not comprehensive.

    The format of this reader is very good for beginners, I think, as well as for those who don t care much about the language The glosses of most words are right there on the side of the page, or else down below in footnotes when things get sticky, so even if your knowledge of Old English is small, you can get through some of the easier texts I ve been studying Old English for a couple years now, and I find myself getting pretty lazy while reading it, that I focus on the meaningthan the lan The format of this reader is very good for beginners, I think, as well as for those who don t care much about the language The glosses of most words are right there on the side of the page, or else down below in footnotes when things get sticky, so even if your knowledge of Old English is small, you can get through some of the easier texts I ve been studying Old English for a couple years now, and I find myself getting pretty lazy while reading it, that I focus on the meaningthan the language though this might be due to my beingof a lit person than a lang person Still, the footnotes and opening sections on the text are very informative, and the variety of texts in here is really great

    Quite a big selection of texts, well glossed and with informative introductions The format, with the glosses on the same page, is helpful perhaps too helpful, as I relied on it quite a lot, and I won t have the glosses in the exam Makes it pretty easy to get a feel for the language Didn t really use the pages about grammar, mostly because I was taught that pretty well from different sources.
