court, and his relations with the court, in particular his
relations with Alcuin. The chapter also discusses the importance of
panegyric and patronage for Theodulf.
The third and last introductory chapter is a detailed analysis of
the poetry of Theodulf as a whole. This chapter looks at the
subject, language and prosody of the poems and the influence on
them from other poets.
The six poems then follow. Each is first prefaced by a

the following page, the text and translation for each poem is then
followed by a line by line commentary, noting literary and
historical points of interest.|
