"Mitchell and Robinson's Beowulf: An Edition has all of the features one hopes to find in a classroom edition: glossary, notes, copious but clear explanatory material. But it is more than an edition. It is a distillation of decades of affectionate attention to the poem by two of the top scholars in the field. From the smallest of details like punctuation to the broadest interpretations, Mitchell and Robinson display an abiding respect and admiration for the magnificent artistry of Beowulf." Daniel Donoghue, Harvard University "This is an admirable introduction to the poem." Forum for Modern Language Studies "[...] we should rejoice in what Mitchell and Robinson have provided: a new student's edition of a masterpiece of Old English poetry that has made Beowulf much more accessible to a whole new generation of students." Journal of English and Germanic Philology
