The original oldie but goodie, the great monster killer dukes it out with himself. The Heaney version is the same text he scored a hit with in 2000, now with more than 100 full-page illustrations of ships, swords, and horses-all that Viking warrior stuff. This is a more modern translation, meant for the lay reader. The Gunmere edition was originally published in 1910 and is a bit more traditional and academic. A forthcoming film adaptation by graphic novel god Neal Gaiman and starring Anthony Hopkins and Angelina Jolie will no doubt generate interest in this old saw.
