The Christ of Cynewulf

Honestly, I don't know what to make of the offerings of I can't enthusiastically endorse all of them, but some of them have a peculiar interest both antiquarian and oddity.

The Christ is an oddity in mediocre verse with some interesting wood-cuttings or engravings. Some of the poetry sings, some thuds, I won't comment on the theology because I haven't read extensively enough, but it parallels much of the site there is enough there to be wary of. Nevertheless, these things hold an odd charm.

Dear Ms. Lewis,

Thank you. I'm not enough of a Tolkien student to have realized the connection. I seem (vaguely) to remember having read Cynewulf's "Christ" in my undergraduate career; although, I'm not entirely certain at this point. Regardless, your note added a new dimension to it. Thank you.
