Bydefinition, these poems were transmitted orally from performer to performer and were constructed using devices such asrepetition, alliteration, rhyme and kennings to facilitate memorisation and recall.

His tragedies (for he has written two) are not answerable to it; they are, except a few poetical passages, drawling sentiment and metaphysical jargon.
