Reviews

'A new generation of scholars is shaking up the work of the previous generation, and the best of them to date is Berkeley's Emily Thornbury ... [A] thoughtful and well-written book.' A. M. Juster, First Things
'... Thornbury's book is excellent and should be mandatory reading for all scholars and students of Anglo-Saxon literature. Her analysis of individual poetic creations is always precise, innovative, and fascinating.' Samantha Zacher, Journal of English and Germanic Philology
