Vox Germanica celebrates the career and scholarship of James E. Cathey, who retired from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst after more than forty years of distinguished service. In this multifaceted Festschrift, colleagues from North America and Europe offer Cathey cultural and philological studies that complement his capacious interests in the languages and literary traditions of northwestern Europe. The studies range in time and place from Etruscan to the earliest Germanic inscriptions; from the literary monuments of Old English, Old Saxon, and Old Icelandic to modern works by Rilke, Cather, Wagner, and Søeborg; and from historical linguistics to recent changes in Norwegian phonology.
