I will have the extrodinary pleasure of attending a lecture by Prof. Drout at the Tolkien Gathering in December. I have already started reading a translation of Beowulf and Tolkien's Beowulf: The Monster and the Critics so I will be prepared for this opportunity of a lifetime.
But still I’d like to have the book rather then reading it from the internet...
I want to by the book Beowulf very bad, but have not found the book yet. But right now i am reading king Arthur. Very cool books.
I haven't actualy read the King Arther book... I'm going to have to do so now. I'm reading Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde at the moment...again...for the 12th time in a row. I'm not obsessed. Honest! *crosses her fingers behind her back!*
Any clues when Tolkien's translation will be released?
Next summer?! Come on... I'm hanging by my earlobes here...
It finally happened (already over a year ago (22 May, 2014)). Has anyone read it? I must admit it's still standing on my shelf next to my other Tolkien books. Maybe now I'm having vacation that I'll have the time and rest to actually read it. I'll post about it as soon as I've read it (or started reading).
