Heroics, doom, gore, monsters, epic battles, a dragon– it's all here. The translation of the first English masterpiece, a tale over 1000 years old that still grips the imagination and feeds the Western European subconscious.

— Reva


Composed toward the end of the first millennium of our era, 'Beowulf' is the elegiac narrative of the adventures of Beowulf, a Scandinavian hero who saves the Danes from the seemingly invincible monster Grendel and, later, from Grendel's mother.
