Description
Old English Alliterative Verse is the earliest form of English poetry, used primarily from ~500 to 1190, while alliterative revival is an English verse form in use from ~1350 to ~1500. In this class, we will discuss the history, structure, and motifs of Old English alliterative verse and its descendant, alliterative revival poetry. If time allows, we may take a crack at writing some!
