R.M. Liuzza, a Professor in the English Department at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, is one of the general editors of The Broadview Anthology of British Literature.
"With a poet's eye and a scholar's touch, the acclaimed translator of Beowulf has given us a superb volume for both the common reader and the literature classroom. All the major Old English poetry is here, beautifully translated into living English verse, introduced and annotated by an expert Anglo-Saxon scholar. Liuzza's anthology of highly accurate, scholarly, poetic translations captures the full expressive range of the oldest poetry in English: the mournful note of elegy, the profound beat of wisdom poetry, the ardent music of faith, and the high songs of heroic fame." -- Andrew Scheil, University of Minnesota
"The translations are beautiful--those of the elegies quite stunningly so. ... Overall, this is a wonderful anthology." -- Andrew Scheil, University of Minnesota
