Goodreads review • Beowulf

BeowulfBeowulf by Unknown
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

OK, severely underestimated this. Reading through it on the train is maybe a bit too casual to tackle all the aspects. Still it is interesting to rummage through it even when unprepared.

The focus on what people said and how they are perceived is way more important than the actual actions they perform (kind of the exact opposite to how entertainment is consumed these days). The focus upon said aspects can make it difficult to read through, almost as if you are missing out. A lot to unpack here then and being able to delve into the etymology of certain words and concepts is really great. That said, this requires a reread later on in a more dedicated fashion.
