The forty-third volume of Anglo-Saxon England contains three contributions on Latin learning in the early part of the period, two focusing on texts being studied at Canterbury, and a third discussing the recording of Cuthbert's cult at Lindisfarne. Old English poetry is well represented by three contributions which exemplify new approaches towards poetic diction and its sources, and reinterpret Cynewulf's use of runes. Old English prose meanwhile receives further attention through a reassessment of its intended audience, and in an analysis of Andreas. There is also a discussion of an unusual prayer first attested in the Leofric Missal. The theme of kingship is addressed in an article on different representations of King Cnut in Old English, Latin and Old Norse texts, and in an extended review of demonstrably or arguably 'royal' books in the Anglo-Saxon period. Each article is preceded by a short abstract.
