Beowulf: Mini Review

— feeling doubt
Beowulf: A New Verse Translation - Seamus Heaney, Anonymous

A lot of wank. That's pretty much all that's going on here. I can see how this stands as one of the foundations of contemporary Fantasy as a genre, but other than that, it's just a lot of standing around and comparing dick sizes, really. Grendel and his mother take up 6, maybe 8 stanzas of the entire poem. What a disappointment.
