Beowulf: With the Finnesburg fragment
Charles Leslie Wrenn, Whitney French Bolton
University of Exeter Press, 1996 - Literary Criticism - 303 pages
This fifth, revised edition of Wrenn's Beowulf strives to retain the four distinctive features of the previous editions: textual conservatism, concise presentation, concentration on the needs of literary students, and Wrenn's superb erudition and experience. For the most part it leaves intact Wrenn's basic intentions and editorial decisions; with rare exceptions, they have been altered only because of new evidence that Wrenn could not have seen. Includes the Old English text of 'Beowulf' and the 'Finnesburg Fragment', with introduction, notes and glossary.
