Old English

A fairly rigorous introduction to the language and literature of Anglo-Saxon England. This will be a demanding course, covering in a year about what a one-semester college course would cover. We will cover the fundamentals of Old English morphology and syntax, and read an assortment of works, including prose histories, sermons, and poetry including "The Wanderer" and "The Seafarer", and segments of Beowulf.
