Tolkiens udgave af Beowulf udgivet
« on: August 23, 2014, 23:35:20 »

Tolkiens oversættelse af myten om Beowulf udkom tidligere i år på forlaget HarperCollins.

Anmelderne er mildt sagt begejstrede:

“This is long-awaited, and hugely exciting for Tolkien readers," skiver The Guardian.

“If he had never written The Lord of the Rings he would have been famous in academic circles for writing one published lecture on Beowulf called The Monsters and the Critics. It turned things upside down. Beowulf was probably the medieval text that influenced him the most and the commentary and lectures are ‘nuggets of gold’”
The Independent

“A tantalising prospect. Tolkien’s translation of Sir Gawain is a master class in linguistic chicanery – Middle English meets Middle Earth… it will be interesting to see if it gives Heaney's Beowulf a run for its money”
Simon Armitage, The Guardian
