The Culture of Translation in Anglo-Saxon England
5
 
 
The Culture of Translation in Anglo-Saxon EnglandTranslation was central to Old English literature as we know it. Most Old English literature, in fact, was either translated or adapted from Latin sources, and this is the first full-length study of Anglo-Saxon translation as a cultural practice. This 'culture of translation' was characterised by changing attitudes towards English: at first a necessary evil, it can be seen developing increasing authority and sophistication.

Teaching Materials and the Roles of EFL/ESL Teachers Practice and TheoryTeaching Materials and the Roles of EFL/ESL Teachers Practice and Theory

The teachers referred to in the title of this book have one thing in common: all teach English to learners who are not speakers of English as a first language. These learners may be children, teenagers or adults, in countries where English is spoken as a first, second or foreign language, and studying English for a specific purpose or for no particular reason. The teachers, who may or may not be native speakers of English, have different levels of education, training and experience, and vary in their personal characteristics.

Today's schools are eager to use the latest technology in the classroom, but rather than improving learning, the new e-media can just as easily narrow students' horizons.

Who Was Edgar Allan Poe?

Who Was Edgar Allan Poe?Filled with broken hearts and black ravens, Edgar Allan Poe’s ghastly tales have delighted readers for centuries. Born in Boston in 1809, Poe was orphaned at age two. He was soon adopted by a Virginia family who worked as tombstone merchants. In 1827 he enlisted in the Army and subsequently failed out of West Point. His first published story, The Raven, was a huge success, but his joy was overshadowed by the death of his wife. Poe devoted his life to writing and his tragic life often inspired his work.
