Praise for the Print Edition
[Beowulf] is in fact so interesting as poetry, in places poetry so powerful, that this quite overshadows the historical content. . . .
—J. R. R. Tolkien, former Merton Professor of Anglo-Saxon, Oxford University, and author, The Lord of the Rings
These opening and closing scenes retain a haunting presence in the mind; they are set pieces but they have the life-marking power of certain dreams. They are like the pillars of the gate of horn, through which wise dreams of true art can still be said to pass.
—Seamus Heaney, recipient, Nobel Prize in Literature, 1995
