Introduction to Old English is a leading text designed to help students engage with Old English literature for the first time.

The book's rich pedagogy includes basic grammar reviews at the beginning of each major chapter, covering the basics of Old English. Other features include "minitexts" for practice in reading the language, and a detailed introduction to meter and poetic style to ease the transition from prose to poetry.

The third edition of Introduction to Old English confirms its reputation as an essential text for all students encountering the language for the first time.
