Title: Postcolonial Elements in Early English Poetry

Abstract: Reconsidering the old and early medieval English poetry, one may notice that a great deal of verse reflects the atmosphere of conflict prevailing at the time. The poets used poetry to commend living or dead people: heroes, knights, holy figures and nobles. The praised champions often defended their homeland against invaders in order to preserve their inherited national identity. This gives Anglo- Saxon( to A.D.1066) and Anglo-Norman( 1066-1340) poetry an importance in the realm of postcolonial studies.
