Long-Delayed Professor Awesome Medieval Book Club to Shoot Soon

I keep promising, and promising, and promising the first series for the "Professor Awesome, PhD's Medieval Book Club," and 12-parter on Beowulf. Everything was on track, including two different musical bumpers and one in progress, so that all we had to do was shoot (this part is not as much work as it sounds) and edit -- and then I had to send my computer with all the editing software off to be repaired.

Tonight the computer returns, and we'll start trying to put together the standard opening credits sequence. If I get that done significantly before editing the first installment, I'll post it here for your enjoyment.


  1. Hey, Dr. Nokes! This is Leigh Holland--I graduated in 2008 and came by to visit you last fall--and I just wanted to show you something I wrote about Beowulf. I'm reviewing books in my spare time (mostly teen fiction), but I'm doing some classics, and I thought of you when I was writing about wordhoards in Beowulf. :-) I wrote a sonnet review of Seamus Heaney's translation, which I thought you might like to see:

    I enjoyed your mini-lecture on the Canterbury Tales! Must go back and watch more.

  2. Hi Leigh ... I've been surfing your blog. Good stuff! We always knew you were destined to do great things.

  3. Nice work. I consider the blog a very nice and updated place to inform yourself.

  4. Speaking of Beowulf, Professor Lee's translation has been recently published: "Sung-Il Lee: New Translation of Beowulf"
