This book contains the twenty-three prose works of The Vercelli Book, a late tenth-century manuscript. With the exception of some three or four homilies, these works have never before appeared in translated form, much less in a collection. The Vercelli Book contains a significant body of prose and poetry. While the poetry is already well known, having been translated many times, the prose, largely untranslated, remains for many relatively unknown. Will be of interest to the student of medieval literature.
