Nearly twenty years after Seamus Heaney's translation of Beowulf, and fifty years after the translation that continues to torment high-school students around the world, Maria Dahvana Headley presents a radical new feminist translation of the epic poem, which brings to light elements that have never before been translated into English, recontextualizing the binary narrative of monsters and heroes into a tale in which the two categories often entwine, justice is rarely served, and dragons live among us.
Adaptation of (expression): Beowulf. English.
