    One of these things, as far as anyone ever can discern, looks like a woman the other, warped in the shape of a man, moves beyond the pale bigger than any man, an unnatural birth called Grendel by country people in former days They are fatherless creatures, and their whole ancestry is hidden in a past of demons and ghosts They dwell apart among wolves on the hills, on wind

    As a college English major, I studied Beowulf without any great enthusiasm my real love was for the Romantic poets And Chaucer, but that might have been partly because I thought it was hilarious that we were studying such bawdy material at BYU Plus you can still puzzle out The Canterbury Tales in its original Middle English, with the help of a few handy annotations, while Beowulf

    If I wrote a list of things I don t give a shit about, I m pretty sure some big fucking monster whose name sounds like a word for the area between my balls and my ass that attacks alcoholics and is eventually slain by some asshole, told entirely in some ancient form of English that I don t understand would be near the top for the record, run on sentences would not Judge not.This was one of

    Beowulf is thought to have been written around the year 1000 AD, give or take a century And the author is the extremely famous, very popular and world renowned writer Unknown Got you there, didn t I LOL Probably not if you re on Goodreads and studied American or English literature, you probably already knew this is one of the most famous works without an author.It was first really published in the

    There are different ways to translate, and it comes down to what you want to get across Most creative authors have such a strong voice and sense of story that they will overwhelm the original author As Bentley wrote of Pope s Iliad It is a pretty poem, Mr Pope, but you must not call it Homer.Sometimes this sort of indirect tr...

    Beowulf and his drunk meathead friends are having a loud party, and their neighbor Grendel comes over like hey guys, can you keep it down that s funny because actually he eats a bunch of them and then Beowulf tears his fuckin arm off and nails it above his door, and honestly nobody really comes out of this looking like a good neighbor, do they So like Humbaba in Gilgamesh, or Odysseus s cyclops, Polyphemus, we have a monster of quest

    I teach Beowulf in my honors class, and it s a tale I ve always loved There s something about the raw power, the direct yet engaging storyline, the rhythm and tone of the story that draws the reader or, ideally, the listener into another world The social conventions, alien in many ways to our modern mindset, show a world both brutal and honorable, where death and heroism go side by side, where every act has consequence and there is no expecta
