The impression clearly given by St. Bede is that he lacked the knowledge of how to compose the lyrics to songs. While asleep, he had a dream in which "someone" quidam approached him and asked him to sing principium creaturarum, "the beginning of created things. He told his foreman about his dream and gift and was taken immediately to see the abbess , believed to be St Hilda of Whitby.

Although he is often listed as a saint, this is not confirmed by Bede and it has recently been argued that such assertions are incorrect. Taken together, this evidence suggests an active period beginning between and and ending between and Hilda , the original abbey fell to a Viking attack in and was abandoned.

The Versus de Poeta contain an expanded account of the dream itself, adding that the poet had been a herdsman before his inspiration and that the inspiration itself had come through the medium of a heavenly voice when he fell asleep after pasturing his cattle.

While our knowledge of these texts is based entirely on a 16th-century edition by Flacius Illyricus , [15] both are usually assumed on semantic and grammatical grounds to be of medieval composition. These parallels have been drawn from all around the world, including biblical and classical literature , stories told by the aboriginal peoples of Australia , North America and the Fiji Islands , mission-age accounts of the conversion of the Xhosa in Southern Africa , the lives of English romantic poets , and various elements of Hindu and Muslim scripture and tradition.

With the exception of the Old English translation, no single recension of the Historia ecclesiastica is characterised by the presence of a particular recension of the vernacular poem. The text has been normalised to show a line-break between each line and modern word-division. A transcription of the likely pronunciation of the text in the early 8th-century Northumbrian dialect in which the text is written is included, along with a modern English translation.

There are a number of verse texts known to have been composed by Cynewulf , but we know nothing of his biography. No study appears to exist of the "named" Anglo-Saxon poets—the list here has been compiled from Frank , Opland , Sisam and Robinson The Heritage Trust.

The two earliest of these manuscripts render the poem in a Northumbrian dialect. The Cambridge University Library "Moore" manuscript appears in an 8th-century hand, and the Leningrad manuscript can be precisely dated in When the workers routinely ate together in the hall at a table, they entertained each other by singing lyrics to a hand-held harp, passed around. Surviving Old English poetry hints at what they sang about: historical battles like Maldon, mythic heroes like Beowulf, lonely wanderers by land and sea such as Widsith, and riddles.
