Made of Ƿ

Let me note right now that I study Old English casually—I’ve never had the privilege of a class, so there are probably errors in the meme. If I’ve mistranslated, please let me know.

To Learn Old English

Block 1: What I think that I do. Picture: Benjamin Bagby of Sequentia performing Beowulf.
Block 2: What my friends think that I do. Picture: awful CG version of Beowulf.
Block 3: What my father and mother think that I do. Picture: poster from 2011 Conan the Barbarian. I never saw that movie, but I thought the picture looked about right—people getting hacked to bits.
Block 4: What society (lit. the kingdom) thinks that I do. Picture: Shakespeare. Many people think that Shakespeare wrote in Old English.
Block 5: What I want to do. Picture: a medieval scribe.
Block 6: What I do. Picture: Student sleeping on pile of books.
