Bringing together some of the most important poetic texts of the Anglo-Saxon period, Anne Klinck presents the poems both as discrete entities and as members of an elegiac group, all inspired by the sense of separation from one's desire that is at the heart of elegiac poetry in Old English. Klinck analyses the poems' manuscript context in the Exeter Book - along with their possible dates and 5/5(1). The poems in the Exeter Book known as the 'Old English elegies' focus on loss, separation and the transience of earthly things. Mike Bintley explores these poems, which include The Wanderer and The Wife's Lament, and highlights the parallels between the elegies and the riddles in the Exeter Book. Bede, also known as the Good Bede and the Venerable Bede, was an ancient scholar who has been called the Father of English History. "Bede's Death Song" is one of the oldest elegies in the English language. Old English is also known as Anglo-Saxon English; the Angles and Saxons were Germanic tribes. England takes its name from the Angles.
