Description

Major modern and contemporary poets are collected as Old English translations in this unusual bilingual volume. With great humor and skill, Peter Glassgold shares with the reader a literary world where petals on a wet, black bough' become 'Blostmabladu on watum, blacum boge' and plums in the icebox taste 'swa swete and swa cealde."
