Recitation: The Wife's Lament

I hadn't realized before how many difficult-to-pronounce words there were in the beginning of "The Wife's Lament." A few of my students chose to brave that text anyway, and here's one of them: Nina McNamera with the opening of "The Wife's Lament."

OK, yes, she may be reading it, but I choose to believe she's reciting from memory and just looking at herself on the monitor.

    And it's the last twenty lines, not the opening.
