Beowulf : A New Verse Translation, Bilingual Edition - 00 edition

Beowulf : A New Verse Translation, Bilingual Edition (ISBN10: 0393320979; ISBN13: 9780393320978)
ISBN13: 978-0393320978
ISBN10: 0393320979

Summary: Composed toward the end of the first millennium, Beowulf is the classic Northern epic of a hero's triumphs as a young warrior and his fated death as a defender of his people.

The poem is about encountering the monstrous, defeating it, and then having to live on, physically and psychically exposed in the exhausted aftermath. It is not hard to draw parallels in this story to the historical curve of consciousness in the twentieth century, but the poem also tra
nscends such considerations, telling us psychological and spiritual truths that are permanent and liberating.

In his new translation, Nobel Laureate Seamus Heaney has produced a work that is both true, line by line, to the original poem and a fundamental expression of his own creative gift.
