Beowulf is a timeless story, pre-dating Tolkien's Lord of the Rings series by several centuries. Since its rediscovery in the early nineteenth century, Beowulf has become a recognised classic, and has been translated hundreds of times.
Beowulf tells the story of a mysterious young warrior who saves the Spear-Danes from the terrible monster Grendel and his venomous mother.
An Old English heroic epic poem of anonymous authorship, dating as recorded in the Nowell Codex manuscript from between the 8th to the 11th century,and relates to events described as having occurred in what is now Denmark and Sweden.
The main character, Beowulf, a hero of the Geats, comes to the aid of Hrogar, the king of the Danes, whose great hall, Heorot, is plagued by the monster Grendel.
Beowulf kills both Grendel and Grendel's mother, the latter with the help of a magical sword, which he uses when his own sword Hrunting is powerless.
Later in his life, Beowulf is himself king of the Geats, and finds his realm terrorized by a dragon whose treasure had been stolen from his hoard in a burial mound. He attacked the dragon with his thegns, but they did not succeed...
