Meet the Author
Anonymous. Yeah, there's not much we can tell you about the author as nobody knows anything beyond a wide estimate that Beowulf was written between the 8th and 11th centuries CE. We think you'll enjoy the tale even without knowing anything about the author. Oh, who are we kidding? Odds are, you're reading this only because it was assigned in class, but hey, it has a cool cover.
