Beowulf is the conventional title of an Old English epic poem consisting of 3182 alliterative long lines, set in Scandinavia, the oldest surviving epic poem of Old English and thus commonly cited as one of the most important works of Anglo-Saxon literature, and also arguably the earliest vernacular English literature.

Customer Reviews

"You don't"?

To the person who said "you don't" in reference to reading Old English: actually, I do, thank you. I happen to be studying Old English and I can read, write, and translate Old English texts. I just wanted to discredit your generalization. Thank you, and good day.

Good translation

The translation is fine. The person who left a one-star review is an idiot. Ignore him. Unless you read Old English (you don't), this is the best free version.

Good book

Stop saying that this is old English, because it is not. Unless you are studying old English, you cannot read it. This isn't old English it is archaic English, learn the difference.
