Beowulf is the classic Anglo-Saxon heroic-elegiac poem recounting the rise and fall of its titular hero, and stands as the first great work in the English literary canon. It depicts an era of shocking savagery and stark beauty, and reflects a deeply conflicted culture’s post-traumatic response to the arrival of Christianity. This book presents a new verse translation of the poem, in a side-by-side bilingual layout for ease of reference, with translator’s notes and introduction.
