Here is a reprint of a spirited version of the oldest English verse epic. With power and memorable simplicity, Ian Serraillier has retold the heroic saga of the warrior who in his youth delivered Hrothgar the Dane from Grendel, the night-prowling monster; and who in his old age fought his last victorious but fatal battle against the dreadful dragon who ravaged the land of the Geats.
The master storyteller Serraillier has rewoven in modern narrative verse the energy and vividness of this original work of art. Illustrated by Severin.
