Praise for the first edition:
"This close and readable translation, put together by a scholar who knows so much about the poem and its craft, remakes the old tale in a new register. From the prickly dignity of overdressed spearbearers to the sad songs of beefy breakers-of-rings in their cups, there is much here to surprise and delight." - Roberta Frank, University of Toronto
"Liuzza takes account of recent scholarly research and provides a commentary, a collection of supporting texts, and an excellent introduction to this 'Christian poet's bittersweet elegy for the doomed heroic life.' His account of the peculiarities of Old English poetic style is particularly helpful." - Frank Kermode, The New York Review of Books
