It is the first collection to examine this literature from a feminist perspective. Although the contributors represent a plurality of approaches and positions, they share a common objective: to reassess women as women, as they actually appear in the laws, in works written by women, and in canonical literature.

The essays address, correct, and round out the nineteenth-century Anglo-Saxon critical tradition and begin fresh exploration of the women in Old English literature.The subjects discussed fall into the following broad categories: the historical record- sexuality and folklore- language and difference in characterization and the deconstructed stereotype. Contributors include Marijane Osborn- Christine E. Fell- F.T. Wainwright- Pauline Stafford- Frank M. Stenton- Mary P. Richard s and B. Jane Stanfield- Carol J. Clover- Edith Whitehurst Williams- Paul E.
