New book: Anglo Saxon Women: A Florilegium

Anglo-Saxon Women: A Florilegium, ed. by Emily Butler (John Carroll University), Irina Dumitrescu (Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn) et Hilary E. Fox (Wayne State University).

This book is a collection of short, interpretive pieces (600-800 words) on a range of women in Anglo-Saxon England. These women include not only those long-recognized and studied, but those who occupy the background of texts. This florilegium of women from across the textual and material record reveals the obvious and obscure roles women played in Anglo-Saxon culture and their often overlooked presence in texts and art. The collection will be a resource for teachers to use in the classroom and for students to use while selecting research topics. It is also designed to be a pleasure to read, both for Anglo-Saxonists and for those curious about the field. This survey is intended to provide the editors with more data for placing the book with a suitable press.
