The anonymous Anglo-Saxon author of the Old English poem "Phoenix," possibly a monk acquainted with a 4th-century Christian Latin poem on this ancient myth, emphasized the themes of death and resurrection. This modern translation by Bill Griffiths employs "a loose alliterative chaining.to give some idea of the sound structure that unites the Old English poetic form." Well-illustrated with 20 lithographic plates by Mary and Nicholas Parry of the Tern Press. Some two-color text printing. quarter cloth, decorated paper-covered boards, paper spine and front cover label. Bookseller Inventory # 53499
