Summary
Written a thousand years ago, this long poem is the very first surviving piece of English literature. Join Beowulf, a young warrior, as he achieves glory by fighting and killing three fantastic monsters. This new translation, by the Nobel laureate poet Seamus Heaney, offers modern readers an accessible, intensely dramatic text. It amply demonstrates why this epic has spread its influence over more than a millennium of literature
