Inhaltsangabe: "The Blickling Homilies" are a collection of Anglo Saxon documents of quite exceptional scholarly importance. Previously, the homilies were published by Continuum in a handsome volume containing the full texts, translation on opposite pages and an introduction for the general reader as to their importance. The documents are now in the library of Princeton University in the USA. Now, Professor Kelly has compiled a detailed concordance to the Homilies which is not only a key to understanding the originals but is also a unique view of the Old English of the time, in all its variations and complexities. It is also a guide to its various dialects. This is a work of incomparable scholarship which yet again confirms Richard Kelly as one of our leading Anglo Saxon scholars.
Über den Autor: Richard J. Kelly is a Professor at the Faculty of Cross-Cultural Studies, Kobe University, Japan and the author of a number of books including The Blickling Homilies: Edition and Translation (2003) which is one of the earliest extant examples of prose writing in English. He has a keen interest in issues of social justice and how they have been dealt with and articulated down through the ages to the present time. He is also a visiting professor at the Faculty of Language and Culture, Osaka University, Japan.
