Publisher's Summary

Beowulf is considered an epic poem, in that the main character is a hero who travels great distances to prove his strength at impossible odds against supernatural demons and beasts. The poem also begins in medias ("into the middle of affairs") or simply, "in the middle", which is a characteristic of the epics of antiquity. Although the poem begins with Beowulf's arrival, Grendel's attacks have been an ongoing event. An elaborate history of characters and their lineages are spoken of, as well as their interactions with each other, debts owed and repaid, and deeds of valour.

boring...

I couldn't tell what was happening the entire time. the way it was written made it sound fancy, but by the end of the book, I had no idea what had happened. it also didn't help that the narrator had a boring monotone voice.
