Thursday, Sept. 8th

After the introduction to the course in general, we time travelled back to the ANGLO-SAXON period.  We are currently reading and discussing Beowulf and shall continue with this text next class.

Please write a short example of ANGLO-SAXON verse about something you did over the summer.  Include a KENNING and a CAESURA, and don’t be afraid to boast and hyperbolize. Note that there is a glossary at the back of your text for the literary terms we discuss.

It was lovely to meet you all today!
