From Anglo-Saxon to Early Middle English brings together eleven papers on aspects of English language and literature from the eighth to the thirteenth century, written in honor of E. G. Stanley, the recently retired Rawlinson and Bosworth Professor of Anglo-Saxon in the University of Oxford. The papers, written by eminent scholars from Britain, North America, New Zealand, and Germany, reflect the range of E. G. Stanley's work, examining philology, meter, and literary style. However, the focus of the volume is on the period of rapid change from late Anglo-Saxon to early medieval England, and the contributors consider in detail the ways in which both language and literary forms developed during this time. The volume contains a comprehensive bibliography of E. G. Stanley's publications, together with an account of his distinguished career.Table of ContentsPrefatory Note List of Abbreviations Did Grendel's Mother Sit on Beowulf? An Alfredian Legacy?
