"Beowulf is the greatest surviving work of literature in Old English, unparalleled in its epic scale and scope. It tells the story of the heroic Beowulf and his battles, first with the monster Grendel, who has laid waste to the great Hall of the Danish king Hrothgar, then with Grendel's avenging mother and finally with a dragon that is devastating his homeland. Through its blend of history, legend and myth, Beowulf vividly evokes a twilight world in which men and supernatural forces live side-by-side, and celebrates the endurance of the human spirit in a transient world." from rear panel blurb.
