Beowulf : a new translation for oral delivery by Dick Ringler( Book )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 714 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dick Ringler's deceptively simple translation captures the rhythm, movement, and power of the original Old English poem while employing a fluid modern English style and a relatively spare vocabulary. A steady succession and alternation of various verse types and sub types together with recurring alliteration patterns give this translation a remarkable momentum, one that makes it ideal for experiencing either silently or aloud." "Typographically, the text is set as a column of "single verses" rather than the "long lines" (pairs of verses separated by a medial caesura) that most readers of Beowulf are accustomed to. This innovation - actually a reversion to an older style of layout - highlights the metrical contours of the verses and facilitates ease of reading; it also makes immediately apparent the interplay among the text's variously indented "normal," "light," and "heavy" verses." "Ringler's generous Introduction, a lively yet masterly guide to the work, along with his translations of three shorter Old English poems ("The Fight at Finnsburg," "The Wanderer" [re-titled "A Meditation"], and "Deor") elucidate a major English text almost as well-known for its subtlety and intricacy as it is for its monsters and heroes."--Jacket
