Winner of the Whitbread Prize, Seamus Heaney’s translation "accomplishes what before now had seemed impossible: a faithful rendering that is simultaneously an original and gripping poem in its own right" (New York Times Book Review).
The translation that "rides boldly through the reefs of scholarship" (The Observer
) is combined with first-rate annotation. No reading knowledge of Old English is assumed. Heaney’s clear and insightful introduction to Beowulf
provides students with an understanding of both the poem’s history in the canon and Heaney’s own translation process.
