Reading and listening to the Anglo-Saxon epic poem Beowulf are vastly different experiences. Poetry, as everyone knows, should be read aloud. Thus Fleet Cooper captures the rhythms and nuances of Beowulf for audiobook listeners without the disruptions that a reader might encounter, such as footnotes, unfamiliar spelling, etc. Cooper's grave and graceful rendition of this famed tale does justice to the Scandinavian hero who defeats the monster Grendel. The language is both beautiful and violent, and this performance conveys the epic's timeless power.
