L2L Beowulf (ft. Carol Andrews)
Hwaet! Dr. Carol Andrews, professor emerita of English at Georgia Southern University (Armstrong), joins Leigh and P. T. for a discussion of Beowulf, one of the most argued-about texts in the English language, even if it is Old English. When was the manuscript created? When was the story created? Did Grendel’s mother really look like Angela Jolie? We’ll discuss the various translations into modern English and quote from Seamus Heaney’s remarkable version. C’mon and listen to the lullaby of Vasterjutland, this week on Listening to Literature.
