Free download ✓ Beowulf Author Unknown å PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Des notes a map a glossary of proper names and a wonderfully illuminating introduction to thr poem and its world. I really don t think I started Beowulf in the right mindset and for the first 20 pages I actually wasn t enjoying it very much at all I think this was because I started reading with certain expectations namely in terms of style for I am familiar with Seamus Heaney s poetry I was put off because I think it was not what I was anticipating There were only a few lines whose construction I really stopped to pool over But game changer then I listened to the piece read in the original old English and started reading it aloud to myself And my appreciation of the language was completely reformed My favourite line the world s candle warmed them line 1966

Free download ✓ Beowulf Author Unknown å PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free In this innovative edition the Old English verse text of Beowulf is faced by a pageon which almost every word is. One of these things as far as anyone ever can discern looks like a woman the other warped in the shape of a man moves beyond the pale bigger than any man an unnatural birth called Grendel by country people in former days They are fatherless creatures and their whole ancestry is hidden in a past of demons and ghosts They dwell apart among wolves on the hills on windswept crags and treacherous keshes where cold streams pour down the mountain and disappear under mist and moorland It rained but it was colder than what it should be to be raining A combination of warmer atmosphere and colder temperatures on the ground produced an ice storm It hit over the weekend so I could sit uite comfortably by my fireplace and watch out the window as the rain formed into sheets of ice on the streets and sidewalks Power lines thickened as they became cubed in ice Foot long and longer icicles dangled and swayed from the power lines from the eaves of houses from signs from fence lines The most affected though were the trees The bigger the tree with the thicker branches the affected they would be The ice accumulated on their branches bending and twisting them down to the ground They became monsters slumbering beneath an armour of ice I d been thinking about rereading Beowulf for some time This story has been a part of me for almost as long as I can remember I read a child s version when I was young several times before moving on to other adult translations The idea of a man taking on a monster much stronger than most men and finding a way to defeat him was compelling mythology for my young mind The terror of it the monster that comes into your home and kills in the dead of the night and takes heads as trophies left shivers in the very center of me Beowulf hears of a monster who is attacking the Danes He is one of thirteen men who decide to go to the rescue of Hrothgar King of the Danes He goes because he needs to make a name for himself as Buliwyf in the movie The 13th Warrior says I have only these hands Beowulf is poor renown for his strength but he has no Hall to call his own and but for this small band no men to call him King Their mail shirts glinted hard and hand linked the high gloss iron of their armour rang So they duly arrived in their grim war graith and gear at the hall and weary from the sea stacked wide shields of the toughest hardwood against the wall then collapsed on the benches battle dress and weapons clashed They collected their spears in a seafarers stook a stand of greyish tapering ash And the troops were as good as their weapons I had spent most of the day finishing another book and thus had started reading Beowulf late in the evening The wife and my Scottish Terrier had gone to bed and I was left in the soft glow of my reading lamp Most of the city had lost power as lines too heavy with ice had crashed down one by one I had candles close to hand It never crossed my mind power or no power that I would go to bed Beowulf was written in Old English between 975 1025 The Seamus Heaney translation that I read had the Old English on one page and Heaney s translation on the other page In college I took a Chaucer class and became a fair hand at deciphering Middle English but looking and even pronouncing these unfamiliar words did not ring any ancient bells in my English soul I would have had better luck reading Greek than Old English 1000 year old manuscript of Beowulf As Beowulf grapples with Grendel and then with Grendel s mother I was just as enthralled with the story as I was as a wee tot The carnage the darkness the uncertainty that Beowulf had to feel despite his boasts to the contrary all lend a fine sharp edge to the tale As I read I also started to hear the sharp cracks and howls of ice heavy tree limbs separating from their trunk in much the same way as Beowulf pulls Grendel s arm loose from his shoulder The crash of these ice shrouded branches against the frozen ground sounded to my mind like the steel swords of the Geats banging against their metal wrapped shields Curiosity got the better of me and I walked out of my back door into an alien landscape Each individual stem of grass had frozen into a nub of ice With every step my boots crunched and slipped across this icy topography Piles of limbs laid at the bottoms of the bigger trees A small limb detached from the cottonwood tree as I stood there and made discordant music as it hit the limbs below before finally landing among its fallen dying brethren on the ground The younger trees limber were probably fine I told myself They are bowed over as if in supplication to Mother Nature Their top branches were frozen to the ground making arches of their shapes It was all very beautiful I remembered reading about a party that was given for Anastasia the Russian princess before her life became tangled in the turmoil of revolution The servants were outside spraying water on the trees so they would glitter with ice as the aristocracy arrived on their horse pulled bell laden sleighs I went back inside and peeled off my boots and my jacket and returned to Beowulf Another log was reuired for the fire so I spent a few moments poking the remaining logs to make room for wood I flinched as I heard crashes from outside An assembly of Geats preparing for battle When I finally settled back into my chair Beowulf has become King of the Geats and fights battles with the greatest champions of the land He involves himself in disagreements When Eofor cleft the old Swede s helmet halved it open he fell death pale his feud calloused hand could not stave off the fatal blow I just loved that feud calloused hand I also really liked your blade making a mizzle of his blood There are lines like that all through the story Words unfamiliar and evocative of a different age Beowulf does age and does need the help of others in the end when he battles a dragon but few men are made with the courage that he is and they fail to help him when he needs it most He does kill the dragon but at the cost of his own life No sword blade sent him to his deathMy bare hands stilled his heartbeatsAnd wrecked the bone house Now blade and handSword and sword stroke will assay the hoard Stormy weather reuires the proper book and a proper hot Scottish tea laced with a few drops of Scotch whiskey For me Beowulf those 3182 lines added enchantment and
