Made me consider how Beowulf can open a dialogue that is still so relevant today - the impact of toxic masculinity. It seems that Beowulf could only attain full glory through self-sacrifice..anyone else think these pressures are still relevant today?

Hali Meiðhad On Sex and Pregnancy chapters reminds me strongly of the all the problems with abstinence based sex ed in schools. Anyone else remember this moment while reading it?

The coolest thing I learn when reading and discussing medieval literature in is to not let my initial reaction to a text obscure the rhetorical depth and overall experience of the piece. It's about imaging yourself in an unfamiliar cultural context 😊

This is also nice to read, because this doesnt have a strong✝️theme throughout it like some of others📚This story has more a slice of life style to the tale. A smaller moment within a bigger storie, but not needing to know really the beginnning nor the ending really.

Conclusion: Dont marriage, dont be pretty nor plain, dont "Do It" with anyone. You should suffer and died noblely with a pure soul if any evil being tries to defile your body god's ok with it because you can become a Saint?Is that what it is getting at? Other opions:

My brother just spelled carrots as carrotes. Said he went with autocorrect's suggestion. My brain wanted to say that if he meant for an Anglo-Saxon genitive for the carrot showing ownership, then his autocorrect would be right. (What has 3323 done to me?)

Explaining to a friend just how important landscape is in Early Medieval Lit and I hear myself say "Landscape is a massive tool."

Considering the rules that presented in the text, I wonder what rules friars or priests were given to practice? I would think they would have some sort of deviation from the ones that are in Ancrene Wisse.

I love that in Sir Orfeo his harp playing casts a spell! It summons people nearby to come listen to him play. In the woods the wild creatures gather round, and in the Faerie land they gather round too.

I noticed the author equated marriage, lust and living with a man to animalistic behaviours. A lot of it refers to a woman becoming slave to a man in harsh, negative ways. Makes me think it is written by a woman sworn off men, pledged to God.

Can’t help but notice that Sir Orfeo starts off in the spring. I know it’s a bit of a trope and certainly common for the time it was written in, but I do enjoy that.

What is the text, Sir Orfeo? The word "aventours" or, adventures, appears 3 times in the first 46 lines. I think it is safe to say that it is a text about an adventure at the core. But it's more! It's about transformation, change, reality, identity. Thoughts?

Also, I took the “stretched on the earth” position as sexual by nature- another taunt, maybe? Or does too much of my brain revolve around the sexual position of feminine characters?

The moment was someone asks what I did yesterday and I can't help teasing them by answering: "Oh I talked about Hot Jesus and how women fantasized about J.C." The looks I got from friends and eavesdroppers was hilarious!

“As that passed over, so will this”, but Beadohild’s rape is something we might empathize with as never really leaving her, no matter the outcome of the child.
