I just finished the final for my Old English class (still working on the final paper, but small successes are important, yah?) One of the questions had to do with the dominate structures within old English poetry, and I thought you guys might be interested in that information. I hope all of you are well - I'm going to try and write a poem a week during the break, so you should see more of me for a few weeks LOL! Hope you enjoy - just please don't point out typos or grammatical errors now. I've already sent it to the professor so I don't want to know HAHA

Thanks for posting - I'm always trying to remember what something is called (like alliteration) so will be printing to put into my folder of memory joggers

For me, it's the kenning. I adore the kenning, but always forget what it's called.

Thank you for this, and Roberta for yours about the Torah, too. These techniques come in really handy because I'm trying to write an epic. The reason I'm doing it is to come up with a lesson plan for teaching West African kids to write epics.
