By: Brljak, Vladimir.
Material type: ArticleArticleDescription: 297-321 str.Subject(s): 6.03 In: Neuphilologische Mitteilungen 112 (2011), 3 ; str. 297-321Summary: The article reviews editorial and critical work on the Old English poem Deor. Starting from the long-standing cruces of the poem’s third section and moving on to broad interpretive issues, it argues that Deor is an original vernacular take on the de casibus genre, employing a series of interconnected native exempla from the so-called Theodoric cycle as illustrations of stock medieval themes of the fickleness of fortune and the transience of mortal existence. Finally, the article makes a plea for further inquiry into the remaining philological problems of this poem.
