Wassail, y’all. . .
The Shope is pleased to announce a new book from the Troth! This one’s from Ben Waggoner. Say What I Am: A Book of Old English Riddles is a much expanded collection of his translated riddles—fifty-one in all. Some of these have appeared in Idunna, but many of them have not. They’re not just entertainment—they’re a nifty look at everyday Anglo-Saxon life and worldview, featuring everything from a plough, to a nightingale, to the stars, to a one-eyed garlic peddler (yes, that one’s a bit odd). And for all that they were probably composed by monks, every so often one of them slips up and reveals just a glimpse of the older ways. . .
We have this in paperback:
