"I wish that the astonishing and powerful Seamus Heaney translation of Beowulf had been available when Roger Avary and I first wrote our film script. Heaney's reading of his own Beowulf has been on my iPod for the last two years, and I play it when my blood needs stirring. This illustrated edition is possibly the finest version of Heaney's translation yet, and is the next best thing to being in the mead hall at Heorat, watching the action, with Heaney chanting it beside you." --Neil Gaiman --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Hoefs Professor of English at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

When I look at old western films now I find myself looking at the scenery instead of following the plot, because some of the normal aspects of life from a different era are more interesting than the plot. In the same way after reading this I felt I knew a bit more about life a long time ago.
