Beowulf

May 8, 2014
10:00 amto11:00 am

On 8 May 2014 Lynette Paterson will be telling us about what is perhaps the earliest known poem in Anglo-Saxon written (and no doubt sung and recited) when the Vikings were still in the ascendant in Northern Europe, long before 1000 AD. It is full of heroes and monsters and battles and derring-do, in magnificent poetry in a language which nobody understands any more but from which our mother tongue is clearly descended.  Meet in the Mullins Room at St Andrew’s Prep at 10.00 am.
