introduction which will attempt to place texts remote from the modern age in their social and

historical contexts. Students will read and discuss the best-known poems of the Old and Middle

English periods (including a selection of Old English poems, medieval romances, and The

Canterbury Tales). There will be a mid-term, final, and major term paper.
