I teach this novel to sixth graders and each year it hands-down their favorite. This translation provides a different ending (for reasons I'm not sure of), however, the premise and themes of good vs. evil are still included.

This is a prose version of the story. It was different in feel and some details frm then verse version I'd read a few years ago.
I had found the verse version much more exciting.
In neither version was there a âlove interestâ for Beowulf as seems to appear in the movies. I had rented one version, sent it back after watching about 15 minutes of it. I've seen the preview for the soon-to-be released version with Angelina Jolie â his love interest. I'll probably skip that one also.
