The inner "Beowulf": Theories of structure and composition of the poem and their implications for modern readers by Yvette Louise Kisor( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the very beginning of Beowulf scholarship there has been a perceived difficulty about the ordering of the text. Confronted with the disparate elements of the poem, many readers (and scholars) are initially overcome by a sense of disorder. This dissertation looks at a number of different theories about how the text of Beowulf is ordered, concentrating especially on recent theories, particularly that of David Howlett, and examining the implications these different theories have for the reader. Much recent criticism has focused on moments when sequences of narrative continuity break down, observing that it is these discontinuous moments that have traditionally troubled readers. In examining this interaction of reader and text, such critics draw attention to the reader's desire for consistency, and the extent to which readers "write" the "gaps" they encounter in the text
