    In this way, both poems contain a Christian message and an exhortation to Christian values, although those found in "The Seafarer" are more explicit. 2. What is the Christian message in "The Seafarer" and "The Wanderer"?: Both of these famous Old English poems have Christian themes, but scholars disagree on which poem offers a more potent sermon. The students’ interpretation of the features that they noticed oscillated between a sense that Armitage had betrayed or damaged aspects of the Old English text, and a sense that the Old English poem itself was in any case too unsophisticated to give rise to praiseworthy contemporary poetry.

Author and literary critic Kevin Crossley-Holland describes "The Ruin" as "an antiquarian's delight", conveying the message that "everything man-made will perish, and that there is no withstanding the passing years.".

      The Wanderer, contained in the Exeter Book (Exeter Cathedral Library MS ), is one of a group of nine Old English poems known as the elegies, poems characterized by “a contrasting pattern of loss and consolation, ostensibly based on a specific personal experience or observation, and expressing an attitude towards that experience.” 1 In. Note on the translations. These translations from Old English aim to capture my understanding of the texts at the time, all the while remembering that these texts are poems. Sometimes the resulting language is a bit “rough” and sometimes naive—not always to everyone’s taste, perhaps, but often to mine.
