    As a college English major, I studied Beowulf without any great enthusiasm my real love was for the Romantic poets And Chaucer, but that might have been partly because I thought it was hilarious that we were studying such bawdy material at BYU Plus you can still puzzle out The Canterbury Tales in its original Middle English, with the help of a few handy annotations, while Beowulf in the original Old English other than the immortal at least in my mind line B owulf is m n nama is beyond a As a college English major, I studied Beowulf without any great enthusiasm my real love was for the Romantic poets And Chaucer, but that might have been partly because I thought it was hilarious that we were studying such bawdy material at BYU Plus you can still puzzle out The Canterbury Tales in its original Middle English, with the help of a few handy annotations, while Beowulf in the original Old English other than the immortal at least in my mind line B owulf is m n nama is beyond anyone but scholars, and it loses something in translation.So I cheerfully forgot about Beowulf until I was puttering around in Barnes and Noble one day, and came across Seamus Heaney s recent translation I read his forward and was absolutely entranced by its brilliance Heaney tosses off phrases like the poem possesses a mythic potency a...

    I ve just finished reading Beowulf for the third time But lo, this reading was in the bold and exciting Beowulf a New Verse Translation by Seamus Heaney And what a difference a day makes Heaney is unstoppable Rather, he makes Beowulf unstoppable Unstoppable in his ability to pound you in the face with his manliness and leave you bleeding but strangely desiring .As I said, I ve read the epic Anglo Saxon poem several times now, but usually, I m trudging through to get to the good parts I ve just finished reading Beowulf for...

    But generally the spearis prompt to retaliate when a prince is killed,no matter how admirable the bride may be I m astounded by the complexity of this poem It makes me wish my Germanic philology course lasted forever so we could analyse it word by word, slowly, meticulously, languidly This is why I personally suggest reading it with the help of a critical guide if you haven t the faintest idea what it tells about, when it was written and what it seeks to portrait, of the debate about it bein But generally the spearis prompt to retaliate when a prince is killed,no matter how admirable the bride may be I m astounded by the complexity of this poem It makes me wish my Germanic philology course lasted forever so we could analyse it word by word, slowly, meticulously, languidly This is why I personally suggest reading it with the help of a cr...

    I teach Beowulf in my honors class, and it s a tale I ve always loved There s something about the raw power, the direct yet engaging storyline, the rhythm and tone of the story that draws the reader or, ideally, the listener into another world The social conventions, alien in many ways to our modern mindset, show a world both brutal and honorable, where death and heroism go side by side, where every act has consequence and there is no expectation of joy and happiness these things have to be I teach Beowulf in my honors class, and it s a tale I ve always loved There s something about the raw power, the direct yet engaging storyline, the rhythm and tone of the story that draws the reader or, ideally, the listener into another world The social conventions, alien in many ways to our modern mindset, show a world both brutal and honor...
