By Tom Schneider,John Earle

Composed via an nameless Anglo-Saxon singer towards the top of the 1st millennium AD, Beowulf is an previous English epic tale recounting the adventures of Beowulf, a Geatish hero from present-day Sweden. he's referred to as on by means of Hrothgar, King of the Danes, to defeat Grendel, the robust monster that threatens his nice hall.

As one of many earliest extant poems in a latest eu language, it depicts a feudal global of blood, victory, and death--a international that exalts heroes who commute nice distances to end up their energy, at most unlikely odds, opposed to supernatural demons and beasts.

Ringing with the wonder, strength, and artistry that experience saved it alive for 1000 years, this venerable story is now to be had with a brand new introduction.
