Medieval literature and civilization: studies in memory of G.N. Garmonsway by Derek Pearsall( Book )

3 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These original contributions to the study of medieval literature and civilization in Britain and Scandinavia are published as a memorial to Norman Garmonsway, Chair of English at King's College, University of London, who died in 1967. The aim has been to offer to the public a book of essays which have a direct bearing upon his central academic interests and which is thus structured, in some measure, after his mind. He saw the study of the language and literature (together with the history and archaeology) of early Britain and Scandinavia as forming a single coherent discipline and this concept

The Anglo-Saxon chronicle by George Norman Garmonsway( Book )

39 editions published between 1953 and 1994 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The so-called Anglo-Saxon chronicle is not one continuous work, but is made up of annals written in the monasteries of Winchester, Canterbury, Peterborough, Abingdon and Worcester. In this volume the records are collated in such a way that there is no unnecessary repetition of material, and the arrangement of the texts follows the editions of J. Earle (1865) and C. Plummer (1892), by permission of the Oxford University Press. For today's reader, the long accounts of the Danish invasions and, later, of the unhappiness of Stephen's reign are probably the most immediately striking passages, but the whole work is full of interest, which is stimulated by the late Professor Garmonsway's introduction, a model of compressed scholarship

BRITISH & IRISH HISTORY: C 500 TO C 1000. The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle is one of the most important sets of historical documents concerning the history of the British Isles. Without these vital accounts we would have virtually no knowledge of some of the key events in the history of these islands during the dark ages and it would be impossible to write the history of the English from the Romans to the Norman Conquest. The history it tells is not only that witnessed by its compilers, but also that recorded by earlier annalists, whose work is in many cases preserved nowhere else. At present there are nine known versions or fragments of the original 'Anglo-Saxon Chronicle' in existence. All of the extant versions vary (sometimes greatly) in content and quality, and crucially all of the surviving manuscripts are copies, so it is not known for certain where or when the first version of the Chronicle was composed
