ABOUT THIS BOOK
King Alfred’s circle of scholars boldly refashioned Boethius’ Consolation of Philosophy from Latin into Old English, bringing it to a vernacular audience for the first time. Verse prologues and epilogues associated with the court of Alfred fill out this new edition, translated from Old English by Susan Irvine and Malcolm R. Godden.
