A Firstbook of Old English
'A Firstbook of Old English' distills instructional materials developed through forty years of teaching this ancestral form of our language. Uniquely it is shaped by principles of second-language instruction without diluting philology of the past century and a half. The author's 'One Hundred Middle English Lyrics' earlier offered a unique and very successful teaching text. His most recent scholarly publication is 'The Earliest Irish and English Bookarts.' Robert Stevick is now Professor of English Emeritus, University of Washington.
