Magisterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 1,3, Technische Universität Dresden (Institut für Anglistik und Amerikanistik), 30 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Das Beowulf-Epos gilt als das bedeutendste Werk der altenglischen Dichtung. Es ist zugleich das älteste komplett erhaltene germanische Heldenepos. Die Forschung hat bisher die Analyse der in direkter Rede gehaltenen Passagen der epischen Dichtung des Beowulf aus sprechakttheoretischer Sicht weitgehend außer Acht gelassen. In dieser Arbeit erfolgt die sprechakttheoretische Analyse der im Beowulf geäußerten Spruchweisheiten, d. h. es werden die illokutionären Kräfte direkter Rede untersucht. Eine solche Analyse ermöglicht es dann, bestimmte Muster illokutionärer Kräfte von Spruchweisheiten herauszuarbeiten. Ein besonderes Augenmerk bei der Analyse von Texten einer anderen Kultur, also nicht nur der frühmittelalterlichen angelsächsischen Kultur, muss auf das Verstehen des Denkens der damaligen Zeit gelegt werden. Aus diesem Grund wird ausführlich auf den kulturellen Kontext und die Funktion von Spruchweisheiten in der angelsächsischen Gesellschaft eingegangen.

A Translation

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."

»Blick auf Beowulf« - In einem in seiner Form einzigartigen Zusammenspiel von Gedichten (Thomas Kling) und Fotografien (Ute Langanky) widmet sich das Künstlerpaar im gleichnamigen Zyklus dem altenglischen Heldenlied Beowulf und dabei indirekt der Frage, wie sich Kunst authentisch auf Vergangenes, teilweise 'Unverzeichnetes' beziehen kann. Sophia Burgenmeister zeigt das komplexe Geflecht von (Inter-)Textualität, (Inter-)Medialität und (Inter-)Materialität auf und eröffnet mit ihrer detaillierten Analyse Kling-Forschern und lyrikbegeisterten Laien einen Zugang zum Verständnis der anspielungsreichen, oft als unlesbar missverstandenen Gedichte und dem bisher weitgehend unerforschten bimedialen Zyklus »Blick auf Beowulf«.

What makes one Anglo-Saxon poem better than another? Why does Beowulf still have the power to move us after so many centuries? What might have been aesthetically pleasing to Old English readers and writers of poetry? While there is an apparent consensus by scholars on a core of poems considered to be exceptional literary achievements - Beowulf, Judith, the Vercelli book - there has been little systematic investigation of the basis for these appraisals. With new essays on rhetoric, wordplay, meter, structure, irony, form, psychology, ethos, and reader response, the contributors to this collection aim to find objective aesthetic qualities in Anglo-Saxon poetry. Posing questions of quality and beauty as discoverable in artefacts, On the Aesthetics of Beowulf and Other Old English Poems significantly advances our understanding not only of aesthetics and Old English poetry, but also of Old English attitudes towards literature as an art form.

But who will guard the great hall he has built, where so many men have lost their lives to the monster while keeping watch? Only one man dares to stand up to Grendel's fury --Beowulf.

R.M. Liuzza’s translation of Beowulf, first published by Broadview in 1999, has been widely praised for its accuracy and beauty. The facing-page translation is accompanied in this edition by genealogical charts, historical summaries, and a glossary of proper names. Historical appendices include related legends, stories, and religious writings from both Christian and Anglo-Saxon traditions. These texts help readers to 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. Appendices also include a generous sample of other modern translations of Beowulf, shedding light on the process of translating the poem. This new edition features an updated introduction and an expanded section of material on Christianity and paganism.
