Chris McCully has translated the Anglo-Saxon Riddles. Now he takes on the greatest Old English epic, devising a highly expressive prosody, and providing a full introduction and rich up-to-date annotation.
Praise for Chris McCully 'McCully gets the life of words, their swing and weight, resonance and cadence. The poems spark with great lines and phrases...'
Literary Review 'this is a singular collection from a singular voice in English poetry, and I highly commend it.'
