by Tylluan Penry. Paperback. 405 pages.
Working with the Anglo-Saxon Runes’ is one of the first commentaries on the Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem written from a pagan perspective. Taking each verse as a separate snapshot, Tylluan Penry introduces the reader to the rich tapestry of Anglo-Saxon life, beliefs, history and legends.
Here you will find beer cellars and gaming boards, singers of songs, fine horses, boats and wandering souls. The result is a truly magical combination of wayfaring and wyrd. Not only do we learn more about each rune, but also about the Anglo-Saxons and their way of life, and last but not least, about ourselves.
Using comparisons with other Anglo-Saxon poetry and the language, Tylluan reveals the deep themes that run throughout the Rune Poem. To ensure that nothing is missed, she presents a fresh translation of the original Rune Poem in this book.
Working with the Anglo-Saxon Runes is not a simple guide to divination, it is a guide to the spiritual life itself...
