Caedmon's <em>Hymn</em>

Caedmon's Hymn

  

by Caedmon

Line 9 Summary

Get out the microscope, because we’re going through this poem line-by-line.

Line 9

for men earth,                     Master almighty.

  • The last line is a short summary of the difficult sentence in lines 7-8. God, who is all-powerful, created an earth for the human race.
  • "Master almighty" is the final title conferred on God and it's a doozy. Read more about it in the "Wordplay" section.
