Beowulf. [Translated by Francis Barton Gummere].This is a short but beautiful book, and the Gummere translation really captures the feel of the Old English. Beowulf tells the story of a mysterious young warrior who saves the Spear-Danes from the terrible monster Grendel and his venomous mother. Long a mainstay of English Literature 101 courses at universities around the world, it is not only one of the oldest, but one of the most exciting English folktales ever invented. (Summary by Caeristhiona)


  • Dean C.

    Narrator was awful couldn't finish

  • Jessie M

    I love the story of beowulf, but I cant get past this narration. The translation is aweful and the reader is even worse.

  • Daniel K

    An eternal classic that never gets old. Save for the horrible narration, I can read and/or listen to this story many more times.
