Hints like thunderbolts


All day I have been doing dull stuff.  Meantime my newest and shiniest book has been waiting for me:


The anthology is wide-ranging and includes Old English, Middle English and the transitional phases between.  Later selections have marginal glosses, but for the Old English a parallel translation runs on the facing page, so there is as much help as ignorance or impatience requires. Though at 800+ pages, who am I kidding?

I could now do with a decent Old English dictionary.  Hint for Christmas, anybody?
