Description:

' Beowulf'& Other Stories has been conceivedin the firm belief that Old English - and its close cousins, Old Icelandic and Anglo-Norman - should be seen as a genuine delight, aperiod as replete with wonder, creativity and magic as any other in literature. The bookforageswith abandon through the literature of the period,turning up en route the fire and bloodlust of the great epic, Beowulf, and thesophistication and eroticismof theExeter Riddles. Fresh interpretations give new life to the spiritual ecstasyof The Seafarer and to the imaginative dexterity of The Dream of the Rood. 'Beowulf' & Other Stories provides the student and general reader with all they might need to explore and enjoy this complex but rewarding field. Written throughout with verve, panache and a deep understanding of its subject, 'Beowulf' & Other Stories is set to be the standard introduction to the field for many years to come.
