This new translation of 'Beowulf' captures the rhythm and movement of the original Old English poem while employing a fluid Modern English style and relatively simple vocabulary. The resulting text provides an approximation of the acoustic features -- and power -- of the original and is suitable for reading either silently or aloud. This edition also includes a substantial Introduction and translations of three shorter Old English poems that shed light on 'Beowulf'.
