    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.

    Seamus Heaney's reading is phenomenal. His narration is passionate and somber.

    Originally meant to be heard rather than read, this great epic returns to the oral form for today's listeners.

    Tad Davis says: "An impassioned reading"
    "just ok"
    Overall

    Well read, but disappointed by how this abridged version ended. This narrative began at a reasonable spot with the duel between Menelaus and Paris, it however ended with the funeral of Hector. A more appropriate ending point would have been either the death of Achilles or the death of Paris. This is just my opinion.
