Anglo-Saxon Poetry

Agenda:
-Bell Work (Cacophony, Clique)
-Vocab Quiz  (for this unit, we will be using Beowulf vocabulary in place of SAT terms)
-Introduction to Anglo-Saxon poetry (literary terms & their use)
-Analysis of Exeter Book Riddles (alliteration, kenning, caesura)


Homework:
-Finish analyzing Exeter Book Riddles (you should look at at least 5)
-Write your own riddle

  • Use alliteration, kenning, and caesura
  • If you get stuck, think of what you want to describe first
  • If you are feeling up to it, try to write your riddle so that it is tricky (think about the bawdy examples in the previous post)
