review ✓ Beowulf author Unknown Beowulf tells the epic story of the heroic Beowulf and his battles first against the m. 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 in the original Old English other than the immortal at least in my mind line B owulf is m n nama is beyond anyone but scholars and it loses something in translationSo I cheerfully forgot about Beowulf until I was puttering around in Barnes and Noble one day and came across Seamus Heaney s recent translation I read his forward and was absolutely entranced by its brilliance Heaney tosses off phrases like the poem possesses a mythic potency and talks about the three archetypal sites of fear the barricaded night house the infested underwater current and the reptile haunted rocks of a wilderness He discusses how we are enveloped in a society that is at once honour bound and blood stained presided over by the laws of the blood feud And he explains in detail how he went about creating a new translation of the poem and the difficulty of finding the right voiceA simple sentence such as We cut the corn to day took on immense dignity when one of my father s relatives spoke it They had a kind of Native American solemnity of utterance as if they were announcing verdicts rather than making small talk And when I came to ask myself how I wanted Beowulf to sound in my version I realized I wanted it to be speakable by one of those relativesAnyway all this is to explain why after years of blissfully ignoring Beowulf I felt compelled to buy this book and give it another try Did it hold up to my hopes Well not uite I still appreciate Beowulf than I love it But I heard the solemn deliberate voice that Heaney was seeking to use and I thought he did a great job of translating it as well as possible into modern English while preserving the original feel and intent of the poem I love the liberal use of alliteration and the compound words whale road sea ring giver king that are found in the original version of the poem as well as this translation I felt the side by side nobility and brutality of these characters from it s surmised 6th century Scandinavia And I was getting some serious Tolkien vibes from the ending which is not at all a bad thingIn the end it was a bit of a tough slog reading through the entire poem but I m glad I did it I think I still love Heaney s forward than I love the actual Beowulf poem I need to check out JRR Tolkien s Beowulf translation one of these days

review ✓ Beowulf author Unknown Del's avenging mother and finally with a dragon that threatens to devastate his homelan. I really don t think I started Beowulf in the right mindset and for the first 20 pages I actually wasn t enjoying it very much at all I think this was because I started reading with certain expectations namely in terms of style for I am familiar with Seamus Heaney s poetry I was put off because I think it was not what I was anticipating There were only a few lines whose construction I really stopped to pool over But game changer then I listened to the piece read in the original old English and started reading it aloud to myself And my appreciation of the language was completely reformed My favourite line the world s candle warmed them line 1966
