    uite interesting think I'll dig out the 2007 adaptationGreat endTo read Beowulf is to touch the world of our ancient ancestors to try to understand where Englandcame from and to discover a period in history that formed our nation our identity and the next centuries of our history It is the starting point for understanding ourselves It’s our epic

    Þæt wæs god gedihtReally interesting to have alongside my Beowulf translation the notes in that are so academic that in places they loose me The Ladybird format made it feel like a book from my childhood and the illustrations are spot on I will be refering back to Dr Ramirez's book often
