Anglo-Saxon for Beginners

Old English was the first European vernacular to have a fully developed literature, and its deliberate mix of Germanic heroic traditions and Latin Christian ones makes for a very distinctive and different literary experience. We would use Bruce Mitchell and Fred C. Robinson's 'A Guide to Old English' (copies are readily available) as our course text, and might supplement it with S.A.J. Bradly's Everyman's Classics translation of Anglo-Saxon Poetry. The group will be split in two meeting at 2 and 3.30 pm on Wednesday afternoons on Zoom, starting in September 22. Eventually we may hope to meet in one another\'s houses.
