User Review  - Dara Potvin - Goodreads

Extremely intricate 3000 and some odd lines/verses of this poem/story - wonderful to read when studying Scandinavian and Anglo-Saxon literature and oral history. The mystical is not mythical. Read this when studying England during the Middle Ages. Loved it. Read full review

User Review  - Tyler - Goodreads

One of the best translations of Beowulf I've come across.
