Coverage includes editions of texts- manuscripts and textual studies- lexical, grammatical and stylistic studies- bibliographies and indexes- interpretive and critical studies- commentaries on metrics and versification. The Old English writings usually termed secular are particularly relevant to the development of cultural studies, especially the study of education and the assimilation of classical learning in the Anglo-Saxon period. The annotations of this volume cover the prose proverbs, dialogues and romances, the computistical texts and Byrhtferths Enchiridion, as well as the magico-medical literature and associated texts (including the prognostics and the lapidary). TOM BURTON, Series Editor, teaches at the University of Adelaide. STEPHANIE HOLLIS and MICHAEL WRIGHT teach at the University of Auckland.
