    Despite its obvious stylistic defects, Andreas may justly be reckoned one of the most interesting Old English poems, notable for its vigorous narrative and varied vocabulary. This critical edition includes Cynewulf's short poem The Fates of the Apostles, once thought to be the conclusion of Andreas. Brooks's critical edition has a full textual commentary, a glossary and an introduction dealing with the sources of the poems, their language and metre, and the question of Beowulfian influence on Andreas. (1961)
