Language and Literature Wolf-Dietrich Bald,? Horst Weinstock (Editors)
In six sections, specialists from different countries report on their research in Old English, Middle English, and Early Modern English, including a paper on runes. In each of the three language periods both the language and the literature of the age are the object of study, and the topics range from philological and editorial problems, questions of lexicology, and of linguistic structure, to new approaches to the evaluation and interpretation of literature.
