Review: Beowulf: A New Verse Translation

User Review  - Nazmul Hasan - Goodreads

Terrible. The plot is predictable and the main character is overly glorified. The reader is asked to love and praise him when clearly there is no reason to do so. As for the monster ... boo hoo. You ... Read full review
