From Publishers Weekly
This third edition of the 1988 reference, full of the same back-to-basics philosophy of the earlier volumes, promises to once again serve as a lightning rod for lively discussion. Divided into chapters such as "The Bible" (the editors point out that, regardless of one's religion, it is impossible to be culturally literate without some Biblical knowledge, just as one needs to know the Koran to be literate in Arab culture), "Technology," "Idioms," "World Geography," "Mythology and Folklore" (which includes everything from Medusa to Mickey Mouse) and "Literature in English," the book is a compendium of thumbnail definitions of the bedrock items that make up society.

Tools of Literacy: The Role of Skaldic Verse on Icelandic Textual Culture of the Twelfth and Thirteenth Centuries

Tools of Literacy: The Role of Skaldic Verse on Icelandic Textual Culture of the Twelfth and Thirteenth Centuries by Gudrun Nordal
English | 1 Oct. 2000 | ISBN: 0802047890 | 432 Pages | PDF | 22 MB

Tools of Literacy is a thorough and ground-breaking examination of thirteenth-century skaldic verse or dr ttkv tt, the literary production of Iceland in the thirteenth century, and of the textual culture which nurtured the poets. Nordal demonstrates the connection between thirteenth-century skaldic verse and the formal study of grammatica in schools, and establishes that skaldic verse was treated much like a Nordic equivalent of classic texts.
