Product description

Review

'This Beowulf translation is a masterful synthesis of history, poetry, and narrative. Liuzza's deep knowledge of the Anglo-Saxon period, combined with an ear keenly attuned to the cadences of Old English poetry, renders the volume an invaluable resource for medievalists everywhere. This is a brilliant, exemplary edition and a must-have for any serious student of the poem. Liuzza has set the standard for many years to come.'Stacy S. Klein, Rutgers University --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Review

“This Beowulf translation is a masterful synthesis of history, poetry, and narrative. Liuzza’s deep knowledge of the Anglo-Saxon period, combined with an ear keenly attuned to the cadences of Old English poetry, renders the volume an invaluable resource for medievalists everywhere. This is a brilliant, exemplary edition and a must-have for any serious student of the poem. Liuzza has set the standard for many years to come.” — Stacy S. Klein, Rutgers University

“The translation I use … is R.M. Liuzza’s. Liuzza’s choices are moderate, combining easy readability with a good level of literal translation. … His diction is plain, not fancy, but it seeks to alliterate where possible … Liuzza’s appendices include many of the texts often discussed in conjunction with Beowulf, which makes the edition indispensable to the amateur scholar.” — Ruth A. Johnston, A Companion to Beowulf

3.0 out of 5 stars Price reflects the quality. Not overly disappointed
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 6 July 2020
What can I say? I’m not thrilled with the quality. If something is described as in good quality but used and it’s a book, you half expect/hope that the previous owner has taken okay care of the product. I’m a bit disappointed with receiving a kinda beaten-up copy, this book has clearly seen better days. However it functions and does the job. The price definitely reflects the quality and it did arrive quite well-packaged. The inside isn’t bashed about much aside from the bottoms of pages being folded so it’ll do what I need it to. All-in-all, it’s ok. Cheap and easy option but not in a particularly good condition
