Thorough literary criticism.
27 November 2012 - Published on Amazon.com
One person found this helpful.
Beowulf can be quite difficult to understand due to the syntax, grammar, and lexicon. The literary criticism offered in this book is exceptional. While some critics are busy trying to decipher the meaning behind the text/poem, other critics praise Beowulf for its aesthetic appeal; its rhythmic representation.
