Beowulf  

Translated by Frances B Gummere.  ISBN 978-0-9791813-1-3.  Paperback 6x9, 184pp.  List price $11.99.  

" 'Tis better to die than to live in shame." The oldest existing story written in Old English, "Beowulf" is the classic tale of courage and honor. In the Great Hall of Hrothgar, King of the Danes, the warrior Beowulf, son of a Swedish King, wages battle with the monster Grendel. The introduction contains a short history of the English language and a description of Anglo-Saxon culture.

 

"The Gummere translation excels at capturing the feel of the Old English, and particularly the alliterations which pervade the original Anglo-Saxon text.  . . . I was excited to see that Gummere is circulating. I hope that many more people will read it and enjoy it as much as I do."
