Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover This unique poetic rendering, available for the first time in a paperback edition, brings the experience of this earliest extant English poem closer to the modern reader. It uses the four-beat alliterative measure without attempting to reproduce the conventional Old English half-line. Consonance and assonance have also been freely used to retain the stylistic feeling of the original while keeping the language readable and contemporary.
