In "the Wanderer", the narrative voice laments lost time with his family and friends as well as the loneliness he feels when at sea, but also lauds the excitement and adventure of life as a sailor. If you were the narrator of this early Anglo-Saxon elegy, how would you feel about this same lifestyle? Would you rather live an exciting life and die at 40 or live an ordinary life and die at 75? Explain why you feel as you do.
