#artyoucanthave - EP. 06 - The Epic Poem of Beowulf

April 30, 2021

In episode # 6, Sandra Hindman explores the epic poem of Beowulf, one of the most important and most translated works of Old English. The poem survives in only one copy known at the Nowell Codex. Even before it was damaged in the infamous Cotton Library fire of 1731, Beowulf was missing a big chunk...so never say never!
