Description

New translation by Benedict Flynn.

The oldest long poem in Old English, written about 1000 A.D., Beowulf tells the story of a great warrior in Southern Scandinavia in both youth and maturity. The monster Grendel terrorises the Scyldings of Hrothgar’s Danish Kingdom until Beowulf defeats him. As a result he has to face her enraged mother. Beowulf dies after a battle against a fierce dragon.

The tale is powerfully performed here by Crawford Logan in a lively modern translation from the original West Saxon dialect.
