Here are some other things about Beowulf floating around the Beo-sphere:
- News for Medievalists has two movie-inspired articles, one from The Indepedent, and one from the Malay Mail.
- University of South Carolina will host an exhibit of Beowulf paraphenalia, including books, manuscripts, comic books, and games. If any Wordhoarders get a chance to see this, write in about it.
- Jeffery Hodges has a report from MEMESAK that includes an excerpt from Sung-Il Lee's translation of Beowulf. HJH agrees with my assessment that Lee's translation is more beautiful than Heaney's. I've seen it in various drafts, and have heard Dr. Lee read from it several times, and I think that the final product may end up being the most beautiful translation of Beowulf into Modern English. All that remains to be seen is the apparatus of the final version once it is published.
