Tolkien's Translation to Beowulf to be Published

3/20/2014

90 years after J.R.R. Tolkien translated the poem Beowulf, it will be published by Harper Collins.

According to Christopher Tolkien his father’s vision of Beowulf “is as if he entered into the imagined past: standing beside Beowulf and his men shaking out their mail-shirts as they beached their ship on the coast of Denmark, listening to the rising anger of Beowulf at the taunting of Unferth, or looking up in amazement at Grendel’s terrible hand set under the roof of Heorot.”
