Alexandra H. Raffel’s translations of all the Old English poems become poems in modern English. Raffel’s poetic translations have long been regarded as excellent poems in their own right. The prose translations in this volume include a generous sampling of historical, legal, religious, and instructional pieces, with works by Alfred, Aelfric, Wulfstan, and Bede. They are lucid and graceful examples of modern English prose. This is a splendid work to introduce students to the culture of the Anglo-Saxons.

Burton Raffel, Alexandra H Olsen, Alexandra Hennessey Olsen. Keeping the classroom teacher’s needs foremost in mind, Raffel and Olsen organize the major old English poems (except Beowulf) and new prose selections so as to facilitate both reading and studying.

In this restructured and greatly expanded version of Burton Raffel’s out-of-print classic, Poems from the Old English, Raffel and co-editor Alexandra H. Olsen place the oldest English writings in an entirely different perspective. Keeping the classroom teacher’s needs foremost in mind, Raffel and Olsen organize the major old English poems (except Beowulf) and new prose selections so as to facilitate both reading and studying. A general introduction provides an up-to-date and detailed historical account of the Anglo-Saxon period, and concise introductions open the literature sections of the book and many of the translations. Raffel’s masterly translations of Old English poetry, praised as fine poems in their own right, reproduce much of the flavor as well as the sense of the originals. With more than 1800 newly translated lines and many revised older translations, the poems in this volume are organized into four genres―elegies, heroic poems, religious poems, and wisdom poetry. Raffel’s new translations include more than twenty poem-riddles, with proposed solutions in a separate section. Prose translations―grouped in historical, testamentary and legal, religious, social and instructional, and medical and magical categories―feature writings by King Alfred, Aelfric, and Wulfstan, among others.

The shipping service took longer than I expected because I live in California and the book came from New York and I really needed it before the first week of school. I order this book about a week before the quarter started again.

When it came in, I was half way through done with reading this book because I had borrowed a copy from a friend. BUT when it came in, it came in more than perfect condition. I bought it used, but it hardly looked like anyone ever cracked it open. I would definitely buy from them again, but next time, it would be two weeks earlier so I can get it on time.
