Beowulf: A New Translation Paperback

Beowulf: A New Translation Paperback Composed towards the end of the first millennium the Anglo-Saxon poem Beowulf is one of the great Northern epics and a classic of European literature In his new translation Seamus Heaney has produced a work which is both true line by line to the original poem and an expression in its language and music of something fundamental to his own creative gift The poem is about encountering the monstrous defeating it and then having to live on physically and psychically exposed in that exhausted aftermath It is not hard to draw parallels between this story and the history of the twentieth century nor can Heaney&39;s Beowulf fail to be read partly in the light of his Northern Irish upbringing But it also transcends such considerations telling us psychological and spiritual truths that are permanent and liberating
