Colleagues, friends, and former students of Oxford Anglo-Saxonist Mitchell decided that, though they certainly wanted to honor him, they also wanted to produce an anthology of essays that would reach as wide a readership as possible. Some even go so far as to provide Modern English translations of quotations. Among their topics are the incomparable wryness of Old English Poetry, Wulfstan's Scandinavian loan word usage, the post-positioning of prepositions in poetic diction, and language and style in two anonymous Easter homilies.
