Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover Bruce Mitchell and Fred Robinson are two of the foremost scholars in the field of Old English language and literature. Here, they draw on their extensive learning and teaching experience in order to create the definitive classroom edition of the Anglo-Saxon epic, Beowulf, which describes the adventures of a great Scandinavian warrior. The book opens with an extensive introduction to Beowulf and the critical debates surrounding it. The poem itself is presented with explanatory footnotes to make it more easily intelligible. The editors then give a detailed account of how they arrived at their text, before finally guiding readers through the background to the poem. A selection of related poetry, an illustrated chapter on Anglo-Saxon archaeology, and a full glossary complete the volume. Mitchell and Robinson's accessible edition of Beowulf is ideal for readers coming to this masterpiece of Old English poetry for the first time.
