Department Section Description: 

OEII builds on the grammatical foundations learned in OEI and adds to students’ knowledge of Anglo-Saxon literature and culture through reading a varied selection of shorter poems and prose in Old English and performing a reenactment of the Battle of Maldon. In addition, OEII continues to strengthen students’ knowledge of the grammatical properties of language while training them to organize complex information in detailed, disciplined ways. Because Old English is a dead language, the course will also familiarize students with some of the basic language tools for studying and reconstructing Old English. The final goal of this course is to prepare students to translate Beowulf in the Spring term in ENG 430/530.
