Commentary

Description

'A thrill . . . “Beowulf― was Tolkienâ€s lodestar. Everything he did led up to or away from it

. . . Perhaps, in the dark of night, he already knew what would happen: that he would never publish

his beautiful “Beowulf,― and that his intimacy with the poem, more beautiful, would remain

between him and the poet—a secret love.' -- New Yorker'Both scholars and lay readers have long

awaited Tolkien's 'Beowulf' translation and its related materials, and everyone will find something

of enduring interest in this collection. For Tolkien, 'Beowulf' was both a brilliant and haunting work

in its own right and an inspiration for his own fiction. It is a poem that will move us as readers, not

forever but as long as we last. Or as Tolkien says, 'It must ever call with a profound appeal—until

the dragon comes.' -- Wall Street Journal'Tolkien-as-guide is delightful, an irresistibly chatty

schoolmaster in the Chaucerian mold . . . His learning and Beowulfâ€s patterns of gloom and

fragile light feel intimately related . . . his noble translation joins the ranks of the narrowly saved.'

– Slate'This rendition—edited by his son Christopher and published for the first time—will

delight fans . . . lovers of Tolkien's work will agree that this is a book long overdue.' – Publishers

Weekly'A marvel of vigor and economy . . . Essential for students of the Old English poem—and

the ideal gift for devotees of the One Ring.' — Kirkus Read more Front cover: New York Times

bestseller   Back cover:  “A thrill . . . Beowulf was Tolkien’s lodestar. Everything he did

led up to or away from it.” —New Yorker  J.R.R. Tolkien completed his translation of Beowulf

in 1926: he returned to it later to make hasty corrections, but seems never to have considered its

publication. This edition includes an illuminating written commentary on the poem by the translator

himself, drawn from a series of lectures he gave at Oxford in the 1930s. Â His creative attention to

detail in these lectures gives rise to a sense of the immediacy and clarity of his vision. It is as if

Tolkien entered into the imagined past: standing beside Beowulf and his men shaking out their

mail-shirts as they beach their ship on the coast of Denmark, listening to BeowulfÂ’s rising anger

at UnferthÂ’s taunting, or looking up in amazement at GrendelÂ’s terrible hand set under the roof

of Heorot.  “Essential for students of the Old English poem—and the ideal gift for devotees of

the One Ring.” —Kirkus  J.R.R. TOLKIEN (1892–1973) is the creator of Middle-earth and

the author of such classic and extraordinary works of fiction as The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings,

and The Silmarillion. His books have been translated into more than sixty languages and have

sold many millions of copies worldwide. Â CHRISTOPHER TOLKIEN is the third son of J.R.R.

Tolkien. He has devoted himself since his fatherÂ’s death to the editing and publication of


unpublished writings, notably The Silmarillion and the colle
