Beowulf links

Beowulf
(Image: The first page of the only manuscript of the poem.)

Here are a few things I ran across, for your reading pleasure:

www.BeowulfTranslations.net: hobbyist Syd Allan's page on various translations of the poem and lots more. His page on comics is particularly fun. (nb. There is an interesting bit here about why you should never buy an essay.) This guy loves the poem.

There is another film, due for release in 2007, for which fantasist Neil Gaiman has a writing credit. This should be good!
