Beowulf: An Updated Verse Translation

Beowulf: An Updated Verse Translation

English | 2007 | ISBN: 0060573783 | 144 Pages | EPUB | 1.2 MB

The acclaimed verse translation of the timeless epic tale of bravery and battle-the enduring saga of the hero Beowulf and the monster Grendel-the first true masterpiece of English literature.

No self-respecting college professor will want his students to be without it....Renditions in modern English haven't taken the poetry of the original very seriously-but what a shock now that someone has! With the subtle rules of alliteration, stress, and pause in place-and with a translator bold enough to invent his own vigorous and imaginative compound nouns-the poem suddenly takes flight and carries us to the highest mountains of achievement.
