Beowulf

Written by Anonymous | Narrated by Robertson Dean
Considered to be among the most important works of Old English literature, this legendary epic is brought to vivid life in audiobook form. Follow along as our titular hero rescues the Danes from the seemingly invincible Grendel before returning home to save his people from a powerful dragon.

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

The earliest extant heroic epic in any European vernacular, Beowulf is considered the most important poem in Old English. The title character is a warrior of superhuman strength who accomplishes glorious deeds to honor his king. He also represents the ideal lord and vassal, generous to his own men while fulfilling all the forms of courtesy at court. The narrative itself falls into two parts: Beowulf first rescues the royal house of Denmark from two marauding monsters; then, after having ruled his people peacefully for fifty years, he is called upon to combat a dragon that is terrorizing the countryside.

Combining mythical elements with actual historical figures and events, the narrative ranges from fierce action sequences to detailed portrayals of court life and earnest considerations of social and moral dilemmas, all in a tone of sustained grandeur.
