Excellent, scholarly introduction which focusses on the values and social relevance of the poem.

Review by shanaqui
Good introduction. The text has a facing prose translation, which will be helpful for the way I'm planning to use it -- for practising my Anglo-Saxon translations.<br/><br/>Heaney's translation would still be my pick for casual reading, though.
