Welcome to the home of the Old English Aerobics Anthology, Glossary and Workout Room. This site provides supplementary materials for users of Peter S. Baker, Introduction to Old English, published by Wiley-Blackwell. These materials include on-line versions of all the texts in the book’s anthology, exercises and a glossary. I have two books by Charles W. Kennedy, late Murray Professor of English Literature at Princeton University. These two include this text, simply entitled 'An Anthology of Old English Poetry', and other volume, 'Early English Christian Poetry.'4/5(1).   All the major Old English poetry is here, beautifully translated into living English verse, introduced and annotated by an expert Anglo-Saxon scholar.

Editor Elaine Treharne includes generous extracts of almost every major work of Old and Middle English. Her parallel translations are an outstanding feature. As you read, you can improve your understanding of both Old and Middle English/5(4).

The latter was my first text, but I believe that the Guide is the superior book. Baker runs a website keyed to his bo. The Vercelli Book is one of the oldest of the four Old English Poetic Codices (the others being the Junius manuscript, the Exeter Book, and the Nowell Codex). It is an anthology of Old English prose and verse that dates back to the late 10th century. The manuscript is housed in the Capitulary Library of Vercelli, in northern Italy.
