Beowulf: With the Finnesburg fragment

Front Cover
University of Exeter Press, 1996 - Fiction - 303 pages

This timely new edition of 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.
