I am compiling a list of conference notes on the Old English poem The Wanderer. I may do this for other things, as I notice that I have multiple discussions. The different conference presentations offer a place to start for introductory notes and/or lectures on the poem.
A Mind of Winter: A Comparative Approach to Wisdom in The Wanderer by Jason Lotz includes identity as a structure for the poem.
Kathleen M. Reinbold’s “I’m Not Dead Yet: OE Elegies,” includes The Wanderer. Covers elegy and the elements of the sublime.
Brett Roscoe’s Waves of Perception presentation at MLA discusses, among other things, the similarity of the poem to the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes.
