Medieval English Reading Group

The Middle English Reading Group will meet again in Hilary Term as an informal way of learning or honing Middle English. During the group we translate and discuss various passages of Middle English.

In Hilary term we will be reading Pearl. Pearl is an anonymous alliterative poem and is considered one of the finest in Middle English poetry. After that we will be open to suggestions for new texts to read.

All levels are welcome to attend.

Passages from the selected texts will be available in hard copy at the group and an electronic copy will be emailed to the mailing list in advance.
