Reviews

'A godsend to anyone who wants to read and understand texts in more than just one older period of English. This is a highly readable, improved and enlarged second edition.' - Olga Fischer, University of Amsterdam'It's engaging approach, its unpretentious scholarship, and its lucid exposition of a broad and complex subject, recommend it as a fine textbook for anyone seeking to understand, both the history of the language, and how the linguistic and the literary interconnect in Early English writing.' - Catherine Batt, University of Leeds, UK
