Rosemary Sutcliff's Beowulf is a narrative retelling aimed at younger readers. Rosemary Sutcliff portrayed Beowulf very well, and wrote it in a more grown-up style than most books, which made it very interesting. Charles Keeping's illustrations are a fine compliment to Sutcliff's proficient grace with the art of story. This is made special by the utter absence of condescension.

Rosemary Sutcliff o pieces; and ever as he sank he fought them off with stroke and lunge of the great sword Hrunting. At last his feet touched the sea floor, and instantly an enemy far more dire was upon him, as the Sea-Hag leapt to fling her arms about him, clutching him to her with claws as terrible as her son’s had been.

  • Good product

  • This is an excellent adaptation of Beowulf that introduces this well-loved epic to middle school students. Great resource! Thanks

  • Dragon-stomping good! A must! I thoroughly enjoyed it. Since I was a child Rosemary Sutcliff has been one of my favorite authors. I first read her rebelling of the King Arthur Legend, and since then I've read everything she penned, that I could get my hands on. Excellent!!!

  • Rosemary Sutcliff's retelling of Beowulf is perfect for 6-8 grade students. It is easy to follow the epic tale but includes descriptive language and concepts true to the period.

  • Liked. It met our high school curriculum needs.

  • I've been fascinated by the Beowulf saga since I was in my teens. Going back and rereading this one was a joy.

  • Good shipping, no problems. Some minor writing in the book, but it was in excellent condition for the low price!

  • This is a wonderful version of the Beowulf epic, adapted for children. Although it is prose, it has a lyrical cadence that really evokes the the original poetic form in many instances throughout the story. The vocabulary, likewise, gives an accurate sense of the original (in translation) and can be challenging for a child who has only been exposed to modern children's books that use easier language. I read a poetic translation of the original immediately before reading this adaptation, and this is so true to the feel of the real thing that it's an excellent preparation for those who aren't quite ready for the poetic form, yet quite a work of art in its own right. Sutcliff is an amazingly talented adapter of classic epic works. Do keep in mind that, though it is retold for children, it is still the same story and doesn't pull its punches -- the description "for children" is more an indication of the reading level than the content level. There is still blood and gore and the whole range of violence of the original, just in simpler form.
