Introduction to Old English Language and Literature
- Course Number: ENGL 110A
Writing 2, or 50, or 109, or English 10 or upper-division standing.
- Catalog Course Entry: ENGL 110A
- Quarter: Fall 2022
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.
An advanced Old English translation class, ENGL 110C, will be offered by Prof. Blurton in the Winter quarter: students wishing to register for that class will need to take this one (110A) first.
