内容简介

The classic eighth-century English poem is strikingly presented, making accessible the story of a young man's heroic journey to find and slay two monsters.

Beowulf is an Old English heroic epic poem of anonymous authorship whose dating is uncertain. Its creation is typically assigned by scholars either to the period 700–750 AD, or to the time of composition of the only manuscript, circa 1010. At 3183 lines, the poem is notable for its length.

The poem is untitled in the manuscript, but has been known as Beowulf since the early 19th century. As the single major surviving work of Anglo-Saxon heroic poetry, the work—in spite of dealing primarily with Danish and Swedish events—has risen to such prominence that it has been described as "England's national epos." The poem was a central inspiration for J.R.R. Tolkien, whose academic career was built around its analysis and explication.

In the poem, Beowulf, a hero of the Geats, battles three antagonists: Grendel, who is attacking the Danish mead hall called Heorot and its inhabitants, Grendel's mother, and becoming a King after returning to Geatland (modern Sweden) later in life, he fought an unnamed dragon. He is mortally wounded in the final battle, and after his death he is buried in a barrow in Geatland by his retainers.
