Text and Picture in Anglo-Saxon England: Narrative Strategies in the Junius 11 Manuscript
Cambridge University Press, 2001 - 225 pages
A lavishly illustrated book, exploring the interrelationship of text and picture in the only surviving illustrated Anglo-Saxon poetic manuscript. The book focuses on the way in which the drawings both illustrate the text and translate it into a new visual language. It locates the manuscript within the broader cultural contexts in which it was produced and read, and documents the way in which it was transformed by poets, artists, and modern scholars and editors from a collection of biblical poetry to a national historical narrative.
