This e-book discusses the attitudes towards Anglo-Saxons expressed by means of English poets, playwrights and novelists from the 13th century to the current day. The essays are prepared chronologically, tracing literary responses to the Anglo-Saxons within the medieval interval, the Renaissance, and in addition the eighteenth and 19th centuries. The members, who're experts of their respective fields from Britain and the USA, draw on works that experience often been overlooked or ignored. They handle topical matters reminiscent of nationalism, cultural identification, fable, gender and contextualization.
