9781898281320: Anglo-Saxon Riddles

A book full of ingenious characters who speak their names in riddles-a bookworm, an iceberg, an oyster, the sun and moon and a one-eyed garlic seller are just a few that bear witness to the every-day life and imagination of the Anglo-Saxons. Their sense of the awesome power of creation goes hand in hand with a frank delight in obscenity, a fascination with disguise and with the mysterious processes by which the natural world is yurned to human use. Contains all 95 Exeter Book riddles.
