Beowulf (möglicherweise altenglisch für „Bienen-Wolf“) ist ein frühmittelalterliches episches Heldengedicht in angelsächsischen Stabreimen. Mit seinen 3.182 Versen stellt es das bedeutendste erhaltene Einzelwerk angelsächsischer Sprache dar. Das Epos entstand vermutlich nach dem Jahr 700 und spielt in der Zeit vor 600 n. Chr. in Skandinavien. Beowulf fährt mit 14 Gefährten nach Dänemark zu König Hrothgar, um diesem beizustehen. Die große Halle des dänischen Königs, Heorot, wird von Grendel, einem menschenverschlingenden Ungeheuer (eventuell in der Tradition nordischer Trolle), heimgesucht. In zwei Kämpfen tötet Beowulf zunächst Grendel mit seinen bloßen Händen und danach dessen auf Rache sinnende Mutter mit dem Schwert eines Riesen.

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.

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.
