The Language of English Literature

How English Sounds

John Wulsin

Folder Bound


In Part 1, Wulsin explores the language of poetry in English as it developed from 800 AD thru the 1800’s AD. His key question is “What do changes in the language reflect or suggest about changing consciousness in English-speaking peoples?”

In Part 2, he reflects on the relationship between the evolving stages of the English language and the developmental stages of adolescents. How might the evolution of English poetry both reflect, and especially affect, the development of a teenager? How can the Spirit of the English language best help adolescents in their development in the context of a Waldorf education?
