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

Beowulf was TolkienÂ’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

collections entitled Unfinished Tales and The History of Middle-earth.
