MEDIA REVIEWS

"Happily fills a gap in the literature on The Heliand....The author has managed to make The Heliand more accessible to the English reader, to bring out the fascination of the work, the majesty of the alliterative verse, and the spiritual and emotional strength of its unnamed poet's brilliant achievement."--Speculum


"There are no other volumes that expose the cultural setting in the remarkable way Murphy does; he understands the period better than anyone else who is working or has worked in the area."--Irmengard Rauch, University of California, Berkeley


"We congratulate [Murphy] for producing a work comparable to that of the poet."--Theological Studies
