Excerpt from introductory lecture:

"In addition to digressions, the epic contains literary devices that reflect
the Old English in which it was first written: kennings, short and often hyphenated metaphorical descriptions used in place of a thing’s name (e.g., sea-rider = ship; ring-giver = king), and alliteration, the repetition of the initial consonant sound in two or more words in a line. In the original Beowulf, alliteration appears in every line, and kennings are found throughout the text. Both kennings and alliteration are mnemonic devices that aid memory; their frequent presence in Beowulf reflects how the story was first shared, told orally as it was passed down through generations. Caesuras, a break
or pause in a line of poetry, usually in the middle of a line, and epithets, a descriptive expression (a word or phrase), often preceding or following a name which serves to describe the character (e.g., Beowulf, son of Ecgtheow), are additional literary devices used throughout Beowulf and are characteristic of Anglo-Saxon poetry."
