The translation of Beowulf by J.R.R. Tolkien was an early work, very distinctive in its mode, completed in 1926: he returned to it later to make hasty corrections, but seems never to have considered its publication.
Release Date: May 22nd.
Well this week was an easy pick! I will buy and read anything with ‘J.R.R.Tolkien”s name slapped on (even if the work has been carried on by his son and I know quite a few people who don’t like what Christopher has done/editing with his father’s work).
Comes out tomorrow! And I’m quite sure you all know the story of Beowulf. No, you don’t? They pick up this copy tomorrow! ^_^
