'In total, In Enigmate provides a fascinating study of the too often oerlooked genre of the "the creation riddle," and Sebo's close sifting of the various historic and literary influences that went into shaping the genre will hopefully encourage further scholarship ... The study will appeal to anyone with a general interest in riddles or with an interest in the poetic traditions inherited by and part of early medieval England.', Devin Jacobsen, University of St. Andrews.
