Language, Style and Meaning in Beowulf

This study, "Language, Style and Meaning in Beowulf," will propose a reassessment of the familiar components of Old English poetic style— meter, lexicon, syntax, rhetoric--in the light of current language theories developed in the fields of linguistics, psychology, and cultural anthropology. This study will contribute not only to Beowulf criticism, but to literary theory in general, especially in relation to older documents.
