Edgar, King of the English, 959-975 : new interpretations by Donald Scragg( )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"King Edgar ruled England for a short but significant period in the middle of the tenth century. Two of his four children succeeded him as king and two were to become canonized. He was known to later generarions as 'the Pacific' or 'the Peaceable', because his reign was free from external attack and without internal dissention." "Despite his considerable achievements, however, Edgar has been neglected by scholars, partly because his reign has been thought to have passed with little incident. A time for a full reassessment of his achievement is therefore long overdue, which the essays in this volume provide."--Jacket

Literary appropriations of the Anglo-Saxons from the thirteenth to the twentieth century( Book )

11 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, first published in 2000, discusses the attitudes towards Anglo-Saxons expressed by English poets, playwrights and novelists from the thirteenth century to the present day. The essays are arranged chronologically, tracing literary responses to the Anglo-Saxons in the medieval period, the Renaissance and also the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. In earlier centuries the Ango-Saxons were often idealized representatives of happier times. Later, they became the epitome of a 'British' race, while an individual Anglo-Saxon, King Alfred, was inflated into a national hero. A final essay suggests the disappearance of any clear sense of the cultural roots of the English in the twentieth century. The contributors, who are specialists in their respective fields from Britain and the United States, draw on works that have frequently been ignored or overlooked. They address topical issues such as nationalism, cultural identity, myth, gender and contextualization
A conspectus of scribal hands writing English, 960-1100 by D. G Scragg( )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the final century of the Anglo-Saxon state, the use of written English reached remarkable heights. Yet, while the make-up and contents of the many books and documents surviving from the periodhave been fully catalogued, less attention has been devoted to those who produced them. This is the first comprehensive annotated list of the scribal hands whose work survives from the time of the Benedictine Reform under King Edgar to that of the generation succeeding the Norman Conquest. More than a thousand hands are listed, together with details of their work, which ranges from a few words or sentences in marginalia to multiple volumes. The result is a reference tool which will allow further research not only into palaeographical issues but also into the writing habits and grammar of individuals and groups of related scribes and into patterns of education in some of the larger cultural centres. Donald Scragg is Professor Emeritus of Anglo-Saxon Studies at the University of Manchester
