‘This is a fitting tribute to a scholar who has taught or inspired many of the contributors. Scattergood’s influence and wide-ranging scholarly interests are lauded frequently throughout the collection; indeed, this influence is manifested in the way contributors have pushed the boundaries of the period they examine. From Anglo-Saxon genealogy to nineteenth-century medievalism, the essays explore a surprisingly diverse range of issues relating to the theme of age and youth … the book is thought-provoking and will be of use to those who wish to explore information transmission in the medieval and Renaissance periods', Natalie Calder, Óenach: FMRSI reviews (2013).

‘Not many have exerted as much influence on the study of medieval and Renaissance literature as has John Scattergood … The papers [in this collection] present insightful readings and viewpoints and in their very variety are a fitting tribute to the breadth of John Scattergood’s scholarly pursuits. The essays are complemented by a list of John Scattergood’s publications, as well as a general index’, Geert Van Iersel, English Studies (April 2015).
