Summary

This new, highly readable edition, by M. A. Roberts, includes a glossary and reader?s notes to help the modern reader with the complexities, archaic language, and references in Beowulf.In an ancient Danish kingdom, Grendel, a brutal monster, roams the countryside nightly, spreading terror across the land. Beowulf, a warrior of great strength and courage, hears of the bloody, pitiless attacks and immediately sets sail to free the Danes from Grendel?s bloodlust. Although Beowulf dates from the very beginning of English literature, this saga of a man who is ?most kind to his people, most eager for fame? is as thrilling to us now as it was to the Anglo-Saxons who first told it over 1,000 years ago. The lively language of adventure, glory, and sacrifice?so often lost in other translations?resonates in this new Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Press Edition.?
