The translation that "rides boldly through the reefs of scholarship" (The Observer) is combined with first-rate annotation. No reading knowledge of Old English is assumed. Heaney s clear and insightful introduction to Beowulf provides students with an understanding of both the poem s history in the canon and Heaney s own translation process."
