Contents
The Homeric epithets are significantly true to their individual character. -- The epithets for the heroes of the Iliad influenced their characterization. -- The kennings for Beowulf rank high in relevance to context, but low in economy, when measured against the epithets for the Homeric heroes. -- The poetic diction of Beowulf has been reformed but not converted. -- No element of Old Testament poetry is more likely than not to have been created for the passage in which it now appears. -- Biblical poetry has its frame of reference in the prose
