The papers collected in this volume reflect the long and distinguished career of Professor Helmut Gneuss in the fields of Early English language, literature and culture. The volume will thus be of particular interest to researchers in Standard Old English, Old and Middle English poetry, medieval manuscript studies, palaeography, and the history of English language scholarship.
