"What has Ingeld to do with Christ?" Using Alcuin's remonstrance as both theme and context for their detailed examination of a remarkable literary corpus, the authors provide a critical reading of Old English texts and a survey of the scholarly literature about them. This "drastic revision" of Greenfield's 1965 work includes a new survey of Anglo-Latin prose by Michael Lapidge and a consideration of works previously omitted. In his newly extended survey of the prose, Calder takes account of the growing scholarship on prose texts and also demonstrates that Old English prose is as considerable an achievement as the poetry. The bibliography is a welcome new feature and the style remains unpretentious but scholarly. Recommended for academic and larger public libraries. Barbara J. Dunlap, City Coll. Lib., CUNY
