Cynewulf: Structure, Style, and Theme in His Poetry Earl R. Anderson The author's exploration of Cynewulf's poetry reveals that Cynewulf's thematic concerns are cosmic in scope, dealing with the establishment of the Christian "ordo", but at the same time intensely personal.

Genre/Form: Criticism, interpretation, etc: Additional Physical Format: Online version: Anderson, Earl R., Cynewulf, structure, style, and theme in his poetry. Elene is a poem in Old English, that is sometimes known as Saint Helena Finds the True was translated from a Latin text and is the longest of Cynewulf's four signed poems.

It is the last of six poems appearing in the Vercelli manuscript, which also contains The Fates of the Apostles, Andreas, Soul and Body I, the Homiletic Fragment I and Dream of the Rood. Cynewulf (/ ˈ k ɪ n ɪ ˌ w ʊ l f /) is one of twelve Old English poets known by name, and one of four whose work is known to survive today.

He presumably flourished in the 9th century, with possible dates extending into the late 8th and early 10th centuries. Known for his religious compositions, Cynewulf is regarded as one of the pre-eminent figures of Anglo-Saxon Christian poetry.

Other poems, formerly thought his, are now attributed to poets of the "Cynewulf school." Bibliography See The Poems of Cynewulf (tr. by C. Kennedy, ); E. Anderson, Cynewulf: Structure, Style, and Theme in His Poetry ().

Cynewulf, also spelled Cynwulf or Kynewulf, (flourished 9th century ad, Northumbria or Mercia [now in England]), author of four Old English poems preserved in late 10th-century manuscripts. Elene and The Fates of the Apostles are in the Vercelli Book, and The Ascension (which forms the second part of a trilogy, Christ, and is also called Christ II) and Juliana are in the Exeter Book.

Kemble's essay on Anglo-Saxon runes first appeared in the journal Archaeologia for ; it draws on the work of Wilhelm Grimm, but breaks new ground for Anglo-Saxon studies in his survey of the Ruthwell Cross and the Cynewulf poems.

It is an expression both of his own indomitable spirit and of the fascination and mystery of the Runes themselves, making one of the most attractive introductions. The known literary works of Cynewulf (KIHN-uh-woolf) remain the four poems attributed to him in the Exeter Book and the Vercelli Book.
