A stunning accomplishment, Ruth P. M. Lehmann’s Beowulf . . . consistently impressive and reliable, an authentic voicing of traditional verse animated by the vigor of Lehmann’s word choice, energized by her deeply felt awareness of linguistic/rhythmic realities, and graced by frequently lovely and haunting turns of phrase. . . . Highly recommended . . .
