WEEK 13 Judith


    Notes:

    Here is the Book of Judith from the Catholic Bible. In Protestant Bibles, Judith is part of the Apocrypha. Here it is in the King James version.

    A discussion of Judith in the Catholic Encyclopedia is here.

    judith

    Note the stylistic similarities between Maldon and Judith. Birds of prey, heroic sacrifice, and so forth. Why does the poet spend so much time describing violence? What stylistic effect does it have, and how does the style inform your understanding of Judith? Of Byrhtnoth? Why portray things that way, and not another?
