Beowulf (poem)

Revision as of 17:47, 5 August 2010 by Morgan (Talk | contribs)

Beowulf is an Anglo-Saxon epic translated, among others, by J.R.R. Tolkien himself.

Tolkien looked highly upon Beowulf, and derived many ideas and translations from the myth. In The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien, the Professor states, "Beowulf is among my most valued sources ..." (#25).
