This book presents a novel treatment of the metre of Beowulf, an Old English epic poem of uncertain date and origin which is nonetheless considered one of the gems of Germanic Alliterative Verse. Building on recent advances in generative linguistics, the analysis presented in this book offers compelling explanations for a wide range of metrical phenomena that have been observed but only poorly understood for over a century.However these questions are ultimately answered, they do not alter the fact that the evidence for long-dead phonological representations in the metre of Beowulf is far ... 101 relates directly to the discussion of PARSESEG and FExMET in As2.
