  • Re playing the lyre, have a look at Benjamin Bagby's performance of "Beowulf" in Old English. There are excellent snippets on YouTube, and the entire performance is available on DVD.

Meticulously collected by Master Aleksandr Ruslanovich (known as "Yevsha") and a former head of the Carolingian Storyteller's Guild.

  • The sonnet I wrote for my son, Evan Bergeron, on the occasion of his 18th birthday: Hwaet XVIII What wisdom can a father give a boy Who suddenly has grown into a man? Who yesterday delighted in his toy And now who dares and does because he can? What knowledge gained in intervening years Between your infant cry and these old bones? The nights all silent spent in prayers and tears...
