    Analysis-
    This rather short poem of 53 lines is another addition from the Exter book. It, along with The Seafarer and The wanderer, is an elegy. It can be classified as so due to the great amount of sorrow in the poem. This Anglo-Saxon poem is an Old English frauenlied, or woman's song, is mainly concerned with the expression of grief from the female speaker. Our female speaker has just recently lost his husband, and mourns his death. She is also the protagonist of the poem.

    The wife stands, takes three steps and says “Goodman, you’ve spoken the foremost word; Get up and bar the door.” (line 41, pg 197)
    This poem shows that the woman is so busy with chores in the house and she stands up to her husband because he just sits there while she is preparing food for them and expects her to do one more thing when he can do it perfectly fine all his own.
