I thought that I was going to take issue with Seamus Heaney's translations; however, his reputation precedes him as a translator and author so I took a chance on this book. Thankfully, I was not disappointed. Beowulf's struggles, his passion was brought alive and made more accessible for the average reader. It's one of the few books that I can read over and over again and never tire of.
