Old English Poetry
It's never too late to learn Old English poetry, and this site is just the
place to delve into this fascinating subject. Created by Murray McGillivray
at the University of Calgary, the site presents a wide range of Old English
poems and poetic lines in a very simplified and easy to use fashion. The
purpose of this project is "to make useable and reliable texts of Old
English poems available in convenient form for students and scholars."
Visitors can click on the "Old English Poetry" section to review a list of
all the poems by title. Also, visitors can view a list of the poems by
original manuscript, and they can also learn about the project's history as
