    Giving a vivid sense of the diversity of Anglo-Saxon poetry, this anthology presents new translations by over 70 modern poets, setting the new versions alongside the Old English originals. The book contains 123 of the finest poems to have survived from the Anglo-Saxon period, arranged in sections on exile and longing, battle, living, dying and biblical stories, interspersed with seven 'riddle-hoards' and ending with a chapter of remedies and charms. Foreword by Seamus Heaney.
