The Metre of Beowulf

The Metre of Beowulf

English | 2002 | 380 Pages | ISBN: 3110171058 | PDF | 11.8 MB

This book presents a novel treatment of the metre of Beowulf, an Old English epic poem of uncertain date and origin which is nonetheless considered one of the gems of Germanic Alliterative Verse. Building on recent advances in generative linguistics, the analysis presented in this book offers compelling explanations for a wide range of metrical phenomena that have been observed but only poorly understood for over a century.
