In this course, you will learn to read Old English: the language spoken and written in England before around 1100. No prior experience with Old English or any other language is required: we will start from scratch. By the end of the class you will be able to fluently translate unseen prose and verse passages, and will have encountered a wide range of literary texts from the period, including elegiac poems, riddles, religious and philosophical texts, and historical writing.
