We started looking the Seamus Heaney translation of the epic poem Beowulf today. Today read the first 144 lines of the poem. We’ll spend a lot of time tomorrow going over them tomorrow. We were able to clearly establish that the author is a Christian. he makes reference over and over again to God & The Lord Almighty.
Other notes: Our upcoming vocabulary exam on English words derived from Anglo-Saxon will be on Tuesday March 7th. Click here for a copy of the words.
No homework tonight, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have work. Prepare for vocabulary or keep reading To Kill a Mockingbird. You should complete chapters 9-16 by next Monday.
