Heaney, Seamus
Beowulf: A New Translation
Faber & Faber, London, 1999. 8vo. SIGNED FIRST EDITION. Full blue paper boards. xxx, 106 pp. Fine condition in fine dust jacket, with protective lamination. Composed towards the end of the first millennium of our era, the Anglo-Saxon poem Beowulf is one of the greatest Northern epics and a classic of European literature. It is a tale of its hero's triumphs as a young warrior and his fated death as a defender of his people. In his new translation, Seamus Heaney has produced a work that is both true, line by line, to the original poem, and an expression, in its language and music, of something fundamental to his own creative gift. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Minotavros Books, ABAC/ILAB [Whitby, ON, Canada]
