Beyond Beowulf

A new translation of the Old English classic alongside two sturdy sequels.

The first sequel (Beyond Beowulf) is the story of  the challenges the tribe faces–raging storms, fearsome trolls–and the people it encounters. Yrfa’s Tale, the second sequel is the real standout of the trilogy and brings an immediate humanity and realism to the epic tale.  Webber’s translation of the original is meticulous and vivid, indeed his clean, musical lines are excellent for reading aloud.
