Beowulf1.5 2 5 Scritto da: Various Authors
Disponibile in formato ebook.
But Beowulf is not just an adventure story. Other tales of war, feuding, and loss in less mythical worlds are interwoven with the main plot in such a way as to force readers to ask questions about the heroic code; equally thought-provoking are the juxtaposition of virtuous and vicious characters, the presence of some women who are helpless victims and others who exert a strong influence on men, and above all the fact that the characters are pagan while the poet is clearly (though not insistently) Christian.
Marc Hudson's thoughtful modern English version combines readability with detailed attention to both the spirit and the meaning of the original poem.
