Summary
"The first and one of the finest Latin poets of Anglo-Saxon England, the seventh-century bishop Saint Aldhelm can justly be called "Britain's first man of letters". Among his many influential poetic texts were the hundred riddles that made up his Aenigmata. In this book, Juster offers the first verse translation of this text in almost a century, capturing the wit, warmth, and wonder of the first English riddle collection."--
