The Art of Beowulf Book Excerpt:

During the twenty years that have passed since the publication of J.R.R. Tolkien's famous lecture, "Beowulf, the Monsters and the Critics," interest in Beowulf as a work of art has increased gratifyingly, and many fine papers have made distinguished contributions to our understanding of the poem as poetry and as heroic narrative. Much more, however, remains to be done. We have still no systematic and sensitive appraisal of the poem later than Walter Morris Hart's Ballad and Epic, no thorough examination of the poet's gifts and powers, of the effects for which he strove and the means he used to achieve them. More than enough remains to occupy a generation of scholars. It is my hope that this book may serve as a kind of prolegomenon to such study. It makes no claim to completeness or finality; it contributes only the convictions and impressions which have been borne in upon me in the course of forty years of study of the poem. - Preface.

The Narrative Pulse of Beowulf Book Excerpt:

John M. Hill discerns a distinctive 'narrative pulse' arising out of the poem's many scenes of arrival and departure. He argues that such scenes, far from being fixed or 'type' scenes, are socially dramatic and a key to understanding the structural density of the poem.

Language Sign and Gender in Beowulf Book Excerpt:

Not a book about what Beowulf means but how it means, and how the reader participates in the process of meaning construction. Overing’s primary aim is to address the poem on its own terms, to trace and develop an interpretive strategy consonant with the extent of its difference. Beowulf’s arcane structure describes cyclical repetitions and patterned intersections of themes which baffle a linear perspective, and suggest instead the irresolution and dynamism of the deconstructionist free play of textual elements. Chapter 1 posits the self/reader as a function of the text/language, examining the ways in which the text "speaks" the reader. Chapter 2 develops an interactive semiotic strategy in an attempt to describe an isomorphic relation between poem and reader, between text and self. Chapter 3 addresses the notions of text and self as more complex functions or formulations of desire, and thus complicates and expands the arguments of the two preceding chapters. The final chapter examines the issue of desire in the poem, and, to a lesser extent, desire in the reader (insofar as these may legitimately be viewed as distinct from each other).

Beowulf Book Excerpt:

The celebrated heroic epic poem is brought to the the big screen with a script that envisions the trials and tribulations of the noble Beowulf. Thrilling, frightening, and truly epic, Gaiman and Avary have crafted an amazing script with all the adventure of the original that illuminates one of the all-time greatest tales. In this legend, the outcast monster Grendel attacks Hrothgar’s great hall, devouring many warriors. When the news of Grendel’s onslaught reaches the Geats tribe, their greatest warrior, Beowulf, leaves his homeland to aid those plagued by the monster. But beyond Grendel lie even greater foes and dark secrets that imperil the kingdom. This epic visualization of Beowulf’s combats with Grendel and later, Grendel’s revenge-crazed mother, merges science fiction and fantastic story-telling, bringing to life the most enduring tale of all time.
