Excerpt from On Anglo-Saxon Versification: From the Standpoint of Modern-English Versification, Submitted to the Faculty of the University of Virginia in Candidacy for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy

In addition to these, there are a number of shorter poems, varying in length from a few lines to three or four hundred some of these shorter poems, however, have more poetic excellence than the longer ones. Anglo-saxon poetry covers a period of some three or four centuries - perhaps from the middle of the 7th century to the middle of the 11th. However, the dates of many of the earlier poems are conjectural, and can not be fixed with certainty. It is probable, indeed - inasmuch as the poems were handed down for a long time in the memory of men - that some of them, such as widsits, the Charms, the lays in Beowulf, etc., were composed at a much earlier date than the 7th century perhaps before the Teutons came over from the continent.
