Beowulf and the Critics was written in the 1930s and was probably delivered as a series of lectures to undergraduates. Tolkien’s highly influential lecture, Beowulf: The Monsters and the Critics, was a redaction of this.

This edition of Tolkien’s lecture series includes both versions of the text together with detailed explanatory notes.
