Obviously, I don't own anything like this, so I settled for an orange-ish tank top for Eutropius (of Orange, get it?) and some blue and gold jewelry. And the cutest dog in the world.
Old English: "The Battle of Brunanburh," lines 1-25. This poem records the victory of the English king Aethelstan and his brother over those nasty Irish and Scotsmen around 937.
Middle English: Sir Orfeo and Sir Launfal. Sir Orfeo is a re-telling of the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, but instead of dying, Eurydice is kidnapped by fairies. And it has a much happier ending. Sir Launfal is about a poverty-stricken knight who is cast out of Arthur's court after being unable to afford a wedding present for Arthur and Guinevere. He meets up with two ladies who introduce to a fairy woman who agrees to help him and be his lover as long as he never tells anyone about her. His fortunes improve, but then he tells someone about her, and she abandons him, and he luck turns yet again. Guinevere, who hates him, trumps up some charges against him, and just as he is about to be executed, the fairy woman shows up, blinds Guinevere, and whisks Launfal off to fairyland to live happily ever after.
