    Beowulf is an epic poem written sometime around A.D. and is well suited for students of all abilities. This teaching guide is organized in three sections presenting suggestions to be used before Beowulf is read, while it is being read, and after the reading is completed. If you ever just wanted to know the story of Beowulf without having to plough through the 3, lines of the epic poem, then this book is for you. This is the story of Beowulf as retold for Young Adults and Children by Strafford Riggs. Set in a time when men were knighted for achieving great feats, and great the feats of Beowulf were.

    Before there was Game of Thrones, there was Beowulf.. With its monsters, life-and-death struggles, and a hero pulled right from the pages of a Marvel comic book, this ancient tale of kingdoms under siege is as mesmerizing today as it was over a thousand years ago.   Perhaps the best reason for reading medieval literature is its atmosphere. When I read Beowulf or Le Morte D'Arthur, I feel as if I know what it was like to live in those days and to hear a minstrel tell the story of a great hero defeating an evil foe. That in itself is worth the : Melissa Snell.
