    Michael Alexander, the translator and compiler of this collection of ancient anglo-saxon poetry, says that his goal with this book is to make anglo-saxon poetry accessible and enjoyable for non-academics, and at this he mostly succeeds. Where he fails is, oddly enough, in the formatting. This is a terribly formatted book.4/5(47). The four poems, like a substantial portion of Anglo-Saxon poetry, are sculpted in alliterative verse. All four poems draw upon Latin sources such as homilies and hagiographies (the lives of saints) for their content, and this is to be particularly contrasted to other Old English poems, e. g.

    understanding, readers must first agree that the Anglo-Saxon book of Judith found in the Nowell-Codex, is just that- Anglo-Saxon. The poem is incomplete with portions missing at the beginning and possibly end, but what remains is a bound manuscript immediately following a copy of Beowulf. The Beowulf text is an epic tale of a Germanic hero, while. Cotton vitellius A. Beowulf --Judith. Poems from other manuscripts.

    Contained in "The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle," this poem is a description of brave Anglo-Saxon warriors driving back Viking raiders in The heroic poem describes the war parties aligned on either side of a stream in Essex. A line fragment, its beginning and ending are both lost. Some critics judge it to be a finer pure epic poem than "Beowulf.".   The centrepiece of the British Library’s extraordinary new exhibition Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms: Art, Word, War is an absolute brute of a book. It’s 1, years old, as big as a seaman’s chest (it has more than one thousand parchment leaves and the spine of the book is over a foot thick), and would have required the skins of calves to make the vellum for its pages.
