THE ANGLO-SAXON BOAST The Anglo-Saxon hero was celebrated in poetry and song, and he was expected to tell of his exploits and adven- tures. These tales were his boasts. Beowulf boasts of his prowess in lines 143-189 (page 26 in your packet) of Be- owulf . Using these lines as models, write your own “Anglo-Saxon” boast which meets the following criteria: CATEGORY CRITERIA CONTENT Using elevated language, it must explain who you are, two of your past accom- plishments, why you are qualified, and boast of one future accomplishment as well as how you intend to achieve this endeavor. LENGTH It must be at least 20 lines long. ELEMENTS It must imitate the Anglo-Saxon poetic form; no end rhymes, a caesura, two ken- nings and an examples of alliteration. KEY A key should be included to direct readers to the Anglo-Saxon literary devices you’ve used. For instance, highlight all kennings in yellow, alliteration in pink, and caesuras in green. Make a key that differentiates each.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
