The classic story of Beowulf, hero and dragon-slayer, appears here in a new translation accompanied by genealogical charts, historical summaries, and a glossary of proper names. These and other documents sketching some of the cultural forces behind the poem's final creation will help readers see Beowulf as an exploration of the politics of kingship and the psychology of heroism, and as an early English meditation on the bridges and chasms between the pagan past and the Christian present. A generous sample of other modern versions of Beowulf sheds light on the process of translating the poem.

Kleopatra, Königin von Ägypten, ist verzweifelt: Octavian, der Heerführer Roms, steht mit seinen Truppen vor den Toren Alexandrias und droht die Stadt zu vernichten. Als dann auch noch Kleopatras große Liebe, ihr Ehemann Markus Antonius, Selbstmord begeht, ist die Königin wild entschlossen, weder ihre Liebe noch ihr Land aufzugeben. In einem uralten Ritual beschwört sie Sachmet, die altägyptische Göttin des Krieges, herauf. Mit ihrer Hilfe will sie Octavian besiegen und Markus Antonius vom Tod zurückholen. Doch die Anrufung Sachmets bringt keine Rettung, sondern verwandelt Kleopatra gegen ihren Willen in eine Kreatur der Dunkelheit. Daraufhin ist Kleopatra entschlossener denn je, Rache zu nehmen – an Octavian und an der Göttin.

This new translation of 'Beowulf' captures the rhythm and movement of the original Old English poem while employing a fluid Modern English style and relatively simple vocabulary. The resulting text provides an approximation of the acoustic features -- and power -- of the original and is suitable for reading either silently or aloud. This edition also includes a substantial Introduction and translations of three shorter Old English poems that shed light on 'Beowulf'.

A stunning experimental translation of the Old English poem "Beowulf," over 30 decades old and woefully neglected, by the contemporary poet Thomas Meyer, who studied with Robert Kelly at Bard, and emerged from the niche of poets who had been impacted by the brief moment of cross-pollination between U.K. and U.S. experimental poetry in the late 1960s and early 1970s, a movement inspired by Ezra Pound, fueled by interactions among figures like Ed Dorn, J.H. Prynne, and Basil Bunting, and quickly overshadowed by the burgeoning Language Writing movement. Meyer's translation -- completed in 1972 but never before published -- is sure to stretch readers' ideas about what is possible in terms of translating Anglo-Saxon poetry, as well as provide new insights on the poem itself. According to John Ashberry, Meyer's translation of this thousand-year-old poem is a "wonder," and Michael Davidson hails it as a "major accomplishment" and a "vivid" recreation of this ancient poem's "modernity."

"Huppe's clear and spirited translation includes a running outline, a dynastic chart, lively and provocative commentary, and a word list. In the introduction, Huppe, sometimes provocatively, discusses the structure of the story, the narrative method, and the Augustinian ethic underlying the conflict between heroic values and Christian values."
