Beowolf Notes

  •  Beowulf connects ancient classic poems.
  • Old English has a different grammar as to Modern English.
  • Old English is like many other languages whose grammar is expressed by inflection.
  • Syntax is more fluid in Old English than it is Modern.
  • Old English spelling will seem off or random, in our terms. The alphabet has some unfamiliar letters.
  • Beowulf cannot be described as fiction or fact.
