Introduction to the Perennial Classics Edition

Except for a few small changes that need no introduction, I am concentrating upon improvement of the poetry in this edition. Alliteration (with a change in one initial sound) remains the same, and the other “rules” of Old English verse forms are followed as far as it is practical to do so in Modern English.

As in the first edition, although it is impossible to translate Beowulf line by line, nothing of any importance is omitted. Old English was a partially inflected language and a poet could therefore do things with word-order intolerable in Modern English, things that I have “corrected” for the sake of clarity. This has necessarily led me astray from the text in places, but I have always returned to the text and caught up with what I missed.

Again I have avoided a sprinkling of commas and semicolons, but I have used them, along with dashes, when necessary. The best way to understand this translation is simply to read slowly with pauses between verses when it seems natural. Too much punctuation would destroy the rhythm of Old English poetry.

I am grateful to my editor, Cass Canfield Jr., for making this updated edition possible.
