Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Like many high school students, I suffered as my English teacher pounded ‘Beowulf’ into my head.
        “But a funny thing happened while I was listening to the new Beowulf CD produced by Norman Gilliland's NEMO Productions. It turns out "Beowulf" is a lot more entertaining when it's translated into a language familiar to the modern ear and the epic poem's original meter is preserved.” -- Heather Lee Schroeder, The Capital Times
