Before there was "Game of Thrones," there was "Beowulf."..
SONG OF BATTLE AND KINGS
" Beowulf" is one of the earliest extant poems in a modern European language, composed in England before the Norman Conquest. As a social document this great epic poem is invaluable--reflecting a feudal world of heroes and monsters, blood and victory, life and death. As a work of art, it is unique. "Beowulf" rings with beauty, power, and artistry that have kept it alive for a thousand years. The noble simplicity of "Beowulf"'s anonymous Anglo-Saxon singer is recaptured in this vivid translation by Burton Raffel.
