Reviews

". . . a close reading of eighteen sermons in the tenth-century Blickling homiliary . . . . Jeffrey's most important contribution to the study of the Blickling homilies is her treatment of the collection as a deliberately constructed whole. . . . advances our understanding of the metonymic method the Old English vernacular writers used. . . . detailed and interesting; her introductory chapter provides a thorough background for understanding the Blickling sermons in the context of other Old English vernacular homilies." _ Christianity and Literature
