Seventeen papers, from a 1992 conference, investigate the difficulties a modern reader faces when encountering this text. Contributors discuss Layamon's atypical syntax, the origins of his metre, marginal glosses in manuscripts, the implied audience and Layamon's treatment of the past, evil and the world.
