9780393330106: Beowulf: An Illustrated Edition

Seamus Heaney's best-selling ?Beowulf? is now wedded to more than one hundred glorious images.

Composed toward the end of the first millennium, Beowulf ?is the elegiac narrative of the Scandinavian hero who saves the Danes from the seemingly invincible monster Grendel and, later, from Grendel's mother. Drawn to what he has called the "four-squareness of the utterance" in ?Beowulf ?and its immense emotional credibility Seamus Heaney gives the great epic convincing reality

But how to visualize the poet's story has always been a challenge for modern-day readers. In Beowulf: An Illustrated Edition, John D. Niles, a specialist in Old English literature, provides visual counterparts to Heaney's remarkable translation. More than one hundred full-page illustrations―Viking warships, chain mail, lyres, spearheads, even a reconstruction of the Great Hall―make visible Beowulf's world and the elemental themes of his story: death, divine power, horror, heroism, disgrace, devotion, and fame. This mysterious world is now transformed into one of material splendor as readers view its elegant goblets, dragon images, and finely crafted gold jewelry against the backdrop of the Danish landscape of its origins.

80 color and 41 black-and-white illustrations

Review:

Accomplish[es] what before now had seemed impossible: a faithful rendering that is simultaneously an original and gripping poem in its own right.

I wish that the astonishing and powerful Seamus Heaney translation of ?Beowulf ?had been available when Roger Avary and I first wrote our film script. Heaney's reading of his own Beowulf has been on my iPod for the last two years, and I play it when my blood needs stirring. This illustrated edition is possibly the finest version of Heaney's translation yet, and is the next best thing to being in the mead hall at Heorat, watching the action, with Heaney chanting it beside you. --Neil Gaiman

The carefully selected pictures that accompany Heaney's masterful translation illustrate the heroic Scandinavian world evoked in ?Beowulf?.... They visualize its helmets, swords, warships, but also the jewelry and musical instruments, and the majestic landscape. --Hans Sauer, University at Munich, and former president, International Society of Anglo-Saxonists
