New Books and Reports
The OEN Subsidia has been reconstituted as Old English Publications. In partnership with the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, OEN will continue to publish brief studies, editions, bibliographies, and other volumes for scholarly and classroom use. We do not publish monographs. Here is a list of volumes, some of which are for sale through Medieval Institute Publications (WMU). Our first volume has appeared: Jane Toswell, trans. Jorge Luis Borges: Germanic Literatures. The next volume will appear in 2015, a translation by Valentine A. Pakis of Frederick Klaeber's Commentary on the Old English Version of Bede's Ecclesiastical History, introduction by Sharon Rowley.
