Desire for Origins: New Language, Old English, and Teaching the Tradition (Hardback)Allen J. Frantzen (author)
Hardback Published: 31/12/1991
- Not available
To many folks, the study of Old English language and literature may seem dull, moribund, rarefied, and largely irrelevant-- a subject only of concern to concern only to musty old academics in the ivory tower. Frantzen doesn't (directly) try to argue against this perception-- instead, he tries to investigate *why* this perception exists. His answer is an insightful and eye-opening investigation into the relationship among scholarship, ideology, and cultural relevance.
