Description:

R.M. Liuzza’s translation of Beowulf, first published by Broadview in 1999, has been widely praised for its accuracy, readability, and poetic beauty. This facing-page edition includes the translated text on facing pages from the original Old English. The poem is accompanied here by genealogical charts, historical summaries, and a glossary of proper names, as well as related legends, stories, and religious writings from both Christian and Anglo-Saxon traditions. These 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. A generous sample of other modern versions of Beowulf sheds light on the process of translating the poem.The second edition features an updated introduction, an expanded section of material on Christianity and paganism, and samples of other translations of Beowulf that have appeared since Liuzza's translation was first published.
