I was an undergraduate at Cornell when I took a course in Middle High German
from William Moulton. He had us memorize 50 lines of the Nibelungenlied and
said that long after we'd forgotten the rest of the course, we'd remember
that. He was right -
Es was ein kuneginne gesessen ueber see/ Ninder ir geliche was deheiniu me
(sorry for the misspellings). . . .
