Old English Club

OLD ENGLISH CLUB (in which students will learn the old English language of the early Anglo-Saxons, & collaborate on a club newsletter for distribution to the school community). Old English is the language in which Beowulf is written. English, as we know our native language today, is a beautiful tongue with a rugged Teutonic base, softened and made tame over the course of centuries by the influence of now ancient conquests and migrations, and later polished and refined by the more delicate file of our bards and wordsmiths. The long meandering course of the English language through the centuries has resulted in what is for us today both a robust and melodic vehicle of thought, versatile in use and expression, with an extremely rich literary tradition and a copious lexicon from which to draw.

Of course, much of this is owed to the influence of Latin and Greek, a knowledge of which is coveted by all who wish to use words with both art and knowledge. But there was an earlier age before the tongue of the Angles knew much either of Greek or Latin, as evidenced by the prose of King Alfred (849 – 901) and the verses of Beowulf. To these ‘old wellsprings of English undefiled’ the club should wish to journey in order to become better acquainted with the base of our language that is the gift of our Teutonic forebears.

This is a great club for those who love English!
