Inhaltsangabe: Beowulf, the primary epic of the English language, is a powerful heroic poem eloquently expressive of the Anglo-Saxon culture that produced it. In this beautiful book a designer, a poet, and a specialist in Anglo-Saxon literature recreate Beowulf for a modern audience. Interweaving evocative images, a new interpretation in verse, and a running commentary that helps clarify the action and setting of the poem as well as the imagery, the book brings new life to this ancient masterpiece. 
Randolph Swearer?s oblique and allusive images create an archaic, mysterious atmosphere by depicting in forms and shadows the world of Germanic antiquity?Scandinavian and Anglo-Saxon art, artifacts, and scenery. At the same time, Raymond Oliver gives Beowulf a world in which to live, filling in the cultural gaps not with a thick matrix of footnotes but with poetry itself. Unlike many translations of Beowulf in existence, Oliver?s retelling of the epic uses modern verse forms for poetic effect and includes a wealth of historically authentic descriptions, characterizations, and explanations necessary for modern readers. Marijane Osborn completes the process of restoring context to the poem by supplying a commentary to clarify the historical and geographical dimensions of the story as well as the imagery that accompanies it. All three work together to bring a likeness of an old and elusive tale to today?s reader.
?The book?s design and the commentary on it provide a unique visual complement to Oliver?s poem... A strange and moving story, compellingly told and seriously interesting to any serious reader of books.??Fred C. Robinson, from the Introduction

Inhaltsangabe: "Beowulf", the primary epic of the English language, is a powerful heroic poem eloquently expressive of the Anglo-Saxon culture that produced it. In this book a designer, a poet, and a specialist in Anglo-Saxon literature recreate "Beowulf" for a modern audience interweaving evocative images, a new interpretation in verse, and a running commentary that helps clarify the action and setting of the poem as well as the imagery. Randolph Swearer's images create an archaic, mysterious atmosphere by depicting in forms and shadows the world of Germanic antiquity - Scandinavian and Anglo-Saxon art, artefacts, and scenery. At the same time, Raymond Oliver gives "Beowulf" a world in which to live, filling in the cultural gaps not with a thick matrix of footnotes but with poetry itself. Unlike many translations of "Beowulf" in existence, Oliver's retelling of the epic uses modern verse forms for poetic effect and includes historically authentic descriptions, characterizations, and explanations necessary for modern readers. Marijane Osborn completes the process of restoring context to the poem by supplying a commentary to clarify the historical and geographical dimensions of the story as well as the imagery that accompanies it. All three work together to bring a likeness of an old and elusive tale to today's reader.
