    New York Times best seller and Whitebread Book of the Year, Nobel Laureate Seamus Heaney's new translation of Beowulf comes to life in this gripping audio. Heaney's performance reminds us that Beowulf, written near the turn of another millennium, was intended to be heard not read.

    Pagan Christian Worldview


    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed how the story allowed us to enter into the world of Beowulf's day, to begin to understand the world before Christianity and to see the seeds of salvation that God was planting in this story and in this time of history.


    What does Seamus Heaney bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The pronunciation of so many names and his wonderful accent!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, that might be too much. We enjoyed listening and then discussing in segments.


    Any additional comments?

    A classic I recommend to all!
