Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0766178323, Paperback)

1915. In preparing this edition, Mr. Dickins set before himself a threefold aim; in the first place, to supply a sound, conservative text with all the necessary apparatus, prolegomena, translation, bibliography and notes both critical and exegetical; in the second, to make use of the archaeological method which Professor Ridgeway has applied so brilliantly to the study of the Homeric poems; and in the third, to emphasize the essential unity of the old Teutonic languages in 'matter' as in poetic diction. Contents: runic poems; Anglo Saxon, Norwegian, Icelandic poem; heroic poems; Anglo Saxon Waldhere, Finn, Deor; old high German Hildebrand; Bibliography; runic alphabet figured.
