An Anglo-Saxon Masterpiece

Posted : 6 years, 8 months ago on 31 December 2010 01:42 (A review of Beowulf)

BEOWULF is a fantastic poem and Heaney's translation is superb. The language is elegant, though not unwieldy, and the narrative is exhilarating, filled with perilous creatures and mortal combat. I recommend it to anyone interested in fantasy, poetry, or Anglo-Saxon culture. Few tales have been more influential to English literature than this one.
