“Taken as a whole, this truly remarkable collection is a fitting tribute, and its range and breadth testify to the many different aspects of the field on which this scholar has already left his mark.” (Renée R. Trilling in : The Medieval Review, 10.04.08)

"Overall, the editors are to be congratulated on this volume full of energy and stimulating new insights into Anglo-Saxon literary culture." (J. Kramer, in: Journal of English and Germanic Philology, January 2012, Vol. 111, no. 1, p. 106-110)




This collection of essays written by some of the most prominent scholars in the field honours Paul E. Szarmach by bringing together a range of studies relating to Anglo-Saxon literature and culture. As the title suggests, the main concern of the volume is the interconnectedness of a variety of texts, including literary, cultural, historical, scholarly, and ecclesiastical. Organized into three sections that consider scholarly reception, material texts and contexts, and textual transmission, this volume offers fresh scholarship on topics old and new.
