Title : The "Hwelp" in "Wulf and Eadwacer" [The symbolic meaning of the "hwelp" (whelp, young dog or wolf) in is much debated in this Old English poem. Some critics interpret the "hwelp" as representing a child who is born as a result of an illicit love affair, but the authors argue that many references to wolves in Old Norse literature and law suggest that the "hwelp" in this poem is the child of an outlaw father. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
