About the Authors
  • This volume discusses current issues in Old English metrics and Middle English alliterative verse from a variety of different perspectives, ranging from the generative theory of metrics to philological studies of individual texts and editing. A distinguished team of contributors combines recent insights from nonlinear phonology with more traditional philology and work on editorial practice to produce a well-integrated view of English historical metrics.

    • State-of-the-art survey of many areas of Old English and Middle English study
    • Articles by acknowledged experts in the field
