English Author
Beowulf is the earliest poem in English.

Epoch: Late 10th Century.


"Famed was this Beowulf:far flew the boast of him, son of Scyld, in the Scandian lands. So becomes it a youth to quit him well with his father's friends, by fee and gift, that to aid him, aged, in after days, come warriors willing, should war draw nigh, liegemen loyal: by lauded deeds shall an earl have honor in every clan."
