A Module in Advanced Old English Series: Readings in Poetry and Prose • Non-sequential Series
Discussion-based • Medium intensity
Welcome to the Readings in Prose page for the Advanced Old English Series in which students explore, in alternating months, a work of prose and then a work of poetry to introduce students to the breadth and depth of Old English texts available for study. Each month Dr. Swain surveys the group to see what they want to tackle next from month to month.
