It is divided into Pagan poetry and Christian poetry.
Pagan poetry was produced by Scops and handed down orally. It is heroic in spirit and sad in tone because it showed the difficult way of living of those people. We have the production of elegies and epics. The most important Anglo-Saxon epic is Beowulf, the first great Anglo-Saxon hero. Anglo-Saxon prose developed thanks to King Alfred who ordered to write the Anglo-Saxon chronicle.
