My mother heard this being read on R4 by Heaney himself. She used to study anglo-saxon and has worked both with the original and a range of 'translations'. She absolutely loved this and asked for it for Christmas but we cant get it for her because of the price and I really cant understand why it seems to be over £700! did the people who reviewed it who had bought the Audio CD rather than the book actually pay that much? It seems totally over the top.
