Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

The first continuous national history of any western people in their own language, The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle traces the history of early England from the migration of the Saxon war-lords, through Roman Britain, the onslaught of the Vikings, the Norman Conquest and on through the reign of Stephen.

Michael Swanton's translation is the most complete and faithful reading ever published. Extensive notes draw on the latest evidence of paleographers, archaeologists and textual and social historians to place these annals in the context of current knowledge. Fully indexed and complemented by maps and genealogical tables, this edition allows ready access to one of the prime sources of English national culture. The introduction provides all the information a first-time reader could need, cutting an easy route through often complicated matters. Also includes nine maps.

Biographie de l'auteur

Michael J. Swanton is Professor of Medieval Studies at the University of Exeter. His extensive publications include translations of the epic poem Beowulf (1978) and a selection of Anglo Saxon Prose (1993).

If you are interested in the early history of England, this book is a must. Although not really qualified to judge the details of the translation
It is 'easy' reading. For the historians the text is fully commented, both linguistically and historically. Why 'only' 4 stars? Because the different manuscripts are not presented in an "easy to compare" format. I have no suggestions as to how to otherwise!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good Translation of an Important Work 9 décembre 2015
Par Kate MacKay - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle is an invaluable resource for anyone studying the history of England. It is definitely not light reading, but it is filled with fascinating and intriguing details of life in England before to just after the Norman Conquest.

I find this to be a good translation. Like any translation, it is not perfect, but the translator does a fine job in his introduction explaining the difficulties of translating and why he made certain word choices. The translator also provides thorough footnotes to clarify and expand upon information written in the Chronicle. The only thing that sometimes annoyed me was the layout of the book. The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle is actually several chronicles kept in several locations. In an attempt to allow the reader to compare the different versions, they are presented side-by-side. Unfortunately, the result is that often entries end in mid-sentence, only to resume several pages later. It was annoying at times, but I did like the ease of comparing manuscripts.

Overall, this is a good translation for anyone interested in Anglo-Saxon history.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good edition of an important work 12 octobre 2008
Par Jordan M. Poss - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Michael Swanton's edition of the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle is a good, handy reference in modern English. A group of manuscripts (eight in all) rather than a single unified book, the Chronicle is the first continuously-maintained vernacular national historical work in Western history. Swanton has here translated and edited the manuscripts to form a continuous whole, and included extensive notes.

I bought this edition in college and have used it for a lot of classwork and independent research since then. The translation is clear and simple and the notes are certainly helpful.

The only thing I dislike about this book is the way in which the text is presented. Rather than each manuscript being presented as-is, they are divided up and rearranged so that all of the manuscripts form a piecemeal chronology from Creation to the final entry in 1154. If you're trying to follow the account of a particular manuscript it can be frustrating, as you have to flip back and forth quite a bit, but this is really a small complaint.

Swanton has included a lengthy introduction that details the various manuscripts of the Chronicle, and extensive back matter including family trees, bibliography, maps, photos, and a detailed index of names and places.

Highly recommended.

M.J. Swanton or Micheal J. Swanton appears to have two similarly named items available on Amazon. One, a translation of "The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle", which appears to be precisely that. And two, "An Anglo-Saxon Chronicle" which is a pamphlet sized edition consisting of seven two to three page passages from Old English printed on left page with vocabulary listed on the right. "An" Anglo-Saxon Chronicle is intended as a tool for those just beginning the study of Old English. It's cool in its way, but if you order it with the expectation that you will receive "The" Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, as I did, you will be very disappointed.

Unfortunately, (in)definite articles seem to be ignored by Amazon's software, and user reviews from either item are showing up under both entries. Even the item description for "An" Anglo-Saxon Chronicle is affected. So be sure you are buying the correct item!

This is a great translation and scholarly adaptation of the Old English manuscripts upon which it is based. Not only does it cover the most popularly used copy but it also lists the differences between it and other manuscripts.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 excellently done 17 juillet 2012
Par Caraculiambro - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Heavily annotated and carefully brought together, this volume is a must-have for any OE scholar or student.

One thing that might irritate you: he mashes all the Chronicles together by date, not separating them into separate sections (although he indicates which is which in the running text).
