Description

Second year undergraduate unit ‘The Anglo-Saxon World’ coordinated by G.J. Tulloch at Flinders University. Although the unit focuses on Anglo-Saxon literature of the eighth to eleventh centuries, including an introduction to the Old English language, an aspect of medievalism is apparent by the inclusion of J.R.R. Tolkien’s ‘The Hobbit’ on the reading list, along with selections from some of his other works. A number of Tolkien’s works present a world similar to that of Anglo-Saxon England.
