BEOWULF THE WARRIOR is an outstanding modern version of the oldest epic in the English language. Ian Serraillier has retold the story of the hero Beowulf and his three memorable exploits. First, his rescuing of Hrothgar the Dane from the ravages of monstrous Grendel; next, his victory over Grendel's strange and horrible mother; and finally, in Beowulf's old age, his saving of his own people, the Geats, from the horrors of a dragon at the cost of his life. Beowulf's heroism and noble heart communicate to any English-speaking listener.

"To venture on the story of Beowulf in verse, whether for children or adults, is a deed with its own kind of heroism.... There must be a hundred way of failing; Mr. Serraillier has hit on one of the ways to succeed. In about 800 lines of well-wrought verse, suitable for reading aloud, and free from the stale smells of lamp and candle, he establishes a manly narrative...."
