Thomas Meyer’s Beowulf

The latest book from Punctum is Thomas Meyer’s translation of Beowulf. No ordinary translation – typographically and linguistically this is very different and this is a beautifully produced edition. It’s available free online or for a small price. You can read more about it on the Punctum Books blog.

Beowulf is a fascinating text and I’m looking forward to reading this version. There is a brief discussion of Beowulf in my forthcoming The Birth of Territory, which draws on a longer piece I wrote on this – “Place Symbolism and Land Politics in Beowulf“. Cultural Geographies. 2009;16:447-463. The link takes you to a freely available version.
