The classic epic poem, written by a poet whose name has been lost to time. A foundational text in English literature, “Beowulf” is an early example of a heroic adventure among the forbearers of the English-speaking peoples.The poem tells the story of Beowulf of the Geats, who journeys to Daneland to aid Hrothgar, king of the Danes, whose people are beset by the monster, Grendel. Besting Grendel in hand-to-hand combat, Beowulf must then face Grendel’s fearsome and vengeful mother.After Beowulf saves Daneland from two monsters, Hrothgar is grateful and the Danes proclaim their allegiance to Beowulf.Beowulf returns to his native Geatland (Sweden), where he becomes king and rules in prosperity for 50 years. He then saves his own people from a fearsome dragon, dying from a mortal wound sustained in the battle.This version of “Beowulf” features the translation of John Lesslie Hall.
