Description

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.

  • Not Beowulf, but a translation

    This is not the poem, it’s “translated by Gummere,” which you can’t find out until after you download it.
