Seminar in Old English Literature

1360H [CRN: 15175]

This course will offer a thorough introduction to the earliest period of English language and literature, and allow students, by the end of the course, to read and appreciate a language that is both intriguingly foreign and importantly familiar. We will start with an extensive coverage of grammar and syntax, before reading short texts, and Old English poetry, including excerpts from Beowulf. Enrollment limited to 20. Not open to first-year students.
