Subject: Hwæt! Next Week

Dear all,

I am pleased to annouce that Hwæt!, the Old English Reading Group, is
back again next week (Feb 6th). We shall start this second semester
by turning to poetry with Dr Ricardo Bermúdez-Otero (Linguistics
and English Language) talking about “Old English Language in Poetry”.
He would like all of us attending to look at the first ten lines from
_The Battle of Brunanburh_ (download here).

I hope I’ll see you all there on Wednesday (4pm at the Poetry Centre,
S.1.5, Samuel Alexander Building, as usual).
