Description:     

Through literature we remember; Through us language engenders.

This research project is two-fold.  Part One explores the language of poetry in English, as it unfolds, from 800 to the 1800s AD. What do changes in the language reflect or suggest about changing consciousness in English speaking peoples? As a teacher of teenagers, I conclude this research, in Part Two, with reflections 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? Or, in other words, how can the Spirit of the English language best help adolescents in their development in the context of a Waldorf Education?
