Beowulf : Facing Page Translation, Paperback / softback Book

Beowulf : Facing Page Translation Paperback / softback

Part of the Broadview Editions series

Paperback / softback


R.M. Liuzza's translation of Beowulf, first published by Broadview in 1999, has been widely praised for its accuracy and beauty.

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. Appendices also include a generous sample of other modern translations of Beowulf, shedding light on the process of translating the poem.

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