persian. Iran
Hwaet. We Gar-Dena

what that means?
it is full text:

Hwaet. We Gar-Dena, he recited, and he went through the opening lines. A circus trick. He still knew the opening lines to Beowulf and “The Seafarer” in Old English, and Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales in Middle English, and the Aeneid in Latin, but he couldn’t actually read the languages anymore.
