Reviews

"This Beowulf translation is a masterful synthesis of history, poetry, and narrative. Liuzza's deep knowledge of the Anglo-Saxon period, combined with an ear keenly attuned to the cadences of Old English poetry, renders the volume an invaluable resource for medievalists everywhere. This is a brilliant, exemplary edition and a must-have for any serious student of the poem. Liuzza has set the standard for many years to come." -- Stacy S. Klein, Rutgers University

"The translation I use ... is R.M. Liuzza's. Liuzza's choices are moderate, combining easy readability with a good level of literal translation. ... His diction is plain, not fancy, but it seeks to alliterate where possible ... Liuzza's appendices include many of the texts often discussed in conjunction with Beowulf, which makes the edition indispensable to the amateur scholar." -- Ruth A. Johnston, A Companion to Beowulf
