The author, Matt Love, was born long ago in Westcliff-on-Sea,
Essex. He graduated from Sussex University in 1977, and taught
Modern Languages for many years. He described himself as "usually
quite poor company, but brightens up somewhat should the conversation
turn to language or history."
Matt Love was a teacher of modern languages
and he brought that skill to the teaching of Old English. The
rules af the language and its words are introduced gradually through
the use of everyday language. This 'natural' introduction to Old
English has been much appreciated by students of all kinds. We
receive more letters of thanks and appreciation for this book
than any other we publish.
