The translation is accompanied in this edition by genealogical charts, historical summaries, and a glossary of proper names. Historical appendices include related legends, stories, and religious writings from both Christian and Anglo-Saxon traditions. These texts help readers to see Beowulf as an exploration of the politics of kingship and the psychology of heroism, and as an early English meditation on the bridges and chasms between the pagan past and the Christian present.

This new edition features an updated introduction and an expanded section of material on Christianity and paganism.

📒Beowulf And Other Stories ✍ Joe Allard
✏Beowulf and Other Stories Book Summary : Beowulf & Other Stories was first conceived in the belief that the study of Old English – and its close cousins, Old Icelandic and Anglo-Norman – can be a genuine delight, covering a period as replete with wonder, creativity and magic as any other in literature. Now in a fully revised second edition, the collection of essays written by leading academics in the field is set to build upon its established reputation as the standard introduction to the literatures of the time. Beowulf & Other Stories captures the fire and bloodlust of the great epic, Beowulf, and the sophistication and eroticism of the Exeter Riddles. Fresh interpretations give new life to the spiritual ecstasy of The Seafarer and to the imaginative dexterity of The Dream of the Rood, andprovide the student and general reader with all they might need to explore and enjoy this complex but rewarding field. The book sheds light, too, on the shadowy contexts of the period, with suggestive and highly readable essays on matters ranging from the dynamism of the Viking Age to Anglo-Saxon input into The Lord of the Rings, from the great religious prose works to the transition from Old to Middle English. It also branches out into related traditions, with expert introductions to the Icelandic Sagas, Viking Religion and Norse Mythology. Peter S. Baker provides an outstanding guide to taking your first steps in the Old English language, while David Crystal provides a crisp linguistic overview of the entire period. With a new chapter by Mike Bintley on Anglo-Saxon archaeology and a revised chapter by Stewart Brookes on the prose writers of the English Benedictine Reform, this updated second edition will be essential reading for students of the period.
📒The Tale Of Beowulf ✍ William Morris
✏The Tale of Beowulf Book Summary : THE TIMELESS FANTASY AUTHOR AND THE TIMELESS CLASSIC When J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis spoke about their fantasy roots, the name "William Morris" always arose as their fantasy forefather. William Morris, of course, is the author of the classic "Well at World's End, " the epic fantasy is the foundation of modern High Fantasy. William Morris was famous for more than fantasy: A true Victorian ball of creative energy, he was a master of design and other kinds of literature -- including poetry. The man was a true polymath, creating floral textiles and wallpapers, painting, creating metalwork, stained glass, jewelry, sculpture, and furniture; at one point he even metamorphosed to become a political firebrand, and published a Socialist political paper. But these days we remember him most clearly as an author. And this wonderful book is William Morris and A.J. Wyatt's translation of the greatest fantasy of all time, "Beowulf." Here are the greatest monsters of all time -- Grendel and Grendel's mother. Here are the bracing words of the greatest saga. And here is the hero of heroes, the Anglo-Saxon warrior who saved his people from the forces of cold and darkness -- Beowulf
