Descrizione

Had the Angles and Saxons not purposefully migrated to the isles of the Britons and brought with them their already-well-developed use of language, Angelina Jolie may never have appeared in the movie Beowulf. Professor Michael D.C. Drout is at his best when lecturing on the fascinating history, language, and societal adaptations of the Anglo-Saxons. He not only presents their storytelling abilities using their own words; he does so in their own voice—the incredibly melodious Old English. Drout’s scholarship and recognized expertise on this subject is of the highest caliber.

  • (5/5)
    Drout's knowledge of the linguistic, literary, cultural and historical aspects of the Anglo-Saxon Age and its legacy is made lively and even entertaining by virtue of his infectious enthusiasm. This is not to say that it is not "scholarly"-- it is. But he is conversational throughout, shows a sense of humor, and avoids the dry-as-dust lecture style of some medievalists and philologists. It's an accessible overview of a topic that can be explored further by turning to some of the suggested readings in the accompanying guide book, which is available for download on Scribd documents https://www.scribd.com/document/260037798/BK-RECO-003383 Anyone curious about the topic will probably enjoy the lecture series.
