The Old English Period

Sarah M. Anderson

Back to "Fall 2018" courses

An intensive introduction to the English language as it was spoken and written in the British Isles from about 450-1100 CE. We will learn the grammar of Old English by closely analyzing excerpts from prose and poetry that demonstrate the range and variety of the literature of this period. The selections will open up the complexities and strange beauties of Old English works and will situate the texts in the cultures that produced them.
