The Beowulf poem is an amazing Anglo-Saxon story about a brave hero named Beowulf who battles three savage monsters. The poem is a heroic epic that is more than 3,000 lines long, with the story taking place in 6th-century Scandinavia (you can download a free copy of the Beowulf PDF by clicking the button below). This copy of Beouwulf was translated by Ernest Kirtlan and it has very helpful footnotes and appendixes included in the book.
It isn’t known who the author of the Beowulf Poem is with scholars simply calling him the Beowulf poet. It is thought that the poem was composed in the 7th century, and it is one of the most important works of old English literature. There’s only one remaining manuscript of Beowulf left, dated to the early 11th century, and it is kept in the British Museum.
