Description: The name “Beowulf” lingers in our collective memory, although today fewer people have heard the tale of the Germanic hero’s fight with Grendel, the dreadful Monster of the Mere, as recounted in this Anglo-Saxon epic. This edition of Beowulf makes the poem more accessible than ever before. Ruth Lehmann’s imitative translation is the only one available that preserves both the story line of the poem and the alliterative versification of the Anglo-Saxon original.
