Description
A class in Norse Viking-Era Poetry from the "practical/how to write it" standpoint. We will go over what we have for sources, how it was used in period, the forms it took, and how to construct good examples of it yourself. We'll discuss meter, alliteration, kennings,and other poetic devices. Here is my handout, if you want to follow along. I will also link it in the chat: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1h7as8VL6MsszCvkNpHAfteP_mYGPcskS/view
