This is the way to experience Beowulf. Two years ago Treebeard and the youngest entling and I saw bard, Benjamin Bagby perform his one man show and it was a transforming experience.

Bagby has a DVD now. I hope schools are sharing this with their students.

pretty cool! I'm going to have to check that one out.

I read Beowulf when I was a teenager, before I HAD too. I was just that weird a kid.

Did you read LOTR before you found Beowulf?

The Professor had much to say about Beowulf and even did his own translation which we have around here somewhere.

After. I read it because I knew he'd done a translation--probably from the biography I read.

Glad I finally made it over to bookmoot, btw, 2 months after kidlit!
