The five essays in this volume discuss texts either from the Old
English period or from the transitional twelfth century, and
each explores, from differing perspectives, how today's
readers make sense of, or construct meanings from, early
English documents.

The volume includes:
Roberta Frank, "F-Words in Beowulf"
Joyce Hill, "Dialogues with the Dictionary: Five Case Studies"
Allen J. Frantzen, "Sin and Sense: Editing and Translating
Anglo-Saxon Handbooks of Penance"
Kevin Kiernan, "Remodeling Alfred's Boethius with the tol ond
andweorc of Edition Production Technology (EPT)
Malcolm Godden, "King Alfred and the Boethius Industry

From word to dictionary, from Beowulf to Boethius, from prose and
verse to prose-and-verse, from Latin sources and resources to
Old English transformations, from glosses to commentaries
to canon formation, from consuetudinaries to penitentials,
from manuscripts to electronic and print editions, these five
essays reflect the direct and round-about paths scholars take
to understand and elucidate our culturally distant primary materials.
