Publikace: Beowulf - A Translation and Commentary, together with Sellic Spell - Tolkien, J. R. R.. The translation of Beowulf by J.R.R. Tolkien was an early work,

very distinctive in its mode, completed in 1926: he returned to it

later to make hasty corrections, but seems never to have considered

its publication. This edition is twofold, for there exists an

illuminating commentary on the text of the poem by the translator

himself, in the written form of a series of lectures given at

Oxford in the 1930s, and from these lectures a substantial

selection has been made, to form also a commentary on the

translation in this book. From his creative attention to detail in

these lectures there arises a sense of the immediacy and clarity of

his vision. It is as if he entered into the imagined past: standing

beside Beowulf and his men shaking out their mail-shirts as they

beached their ship on the coast of Denmark, listening to the rising

anger of Beowulf at the taunting of Unferth, or looking up in

amazement at Grendel's terrible hand set under the roof of

Heorot.

But the commentary in this book includes also much from those

lectures in which, while always anchored in the text, he expressed

his wider perceptions. He looks closely at the dragon that would

slay Beowulf 'snuffling in baffled rage and injured greed when he

discovers the theft of the cup', but he rebuts the notion that this

is 'a mere treasure story', 'just another dragon tale'. He turns to

the lines that tell of the burying of the golden things long ago,

and observes that it is 'the feeling for the treasure itself, this

sad history' that raises it to another level. 'The whole thing is

sombre, tragic, sinister, curiously real. The "treasure" is not

just some lucky wealth that will enable the finder to have a good

time, or marry the princess. It is laden with history, leading back

into the dark heathen ages beyond the memory of song, but not

beyond the reach of imagination.' Sellic Spell, a 'marvellous

tale', is a story written by Tolkien suggesting what might have

been the form and style of an Old English folk-tale of Beowulf, in

which there was no association with the 'historical legends' of the

Northern kingdoms. Publikace: Beowulf - A Translation and Commentary, together with Sellic Spell - Tolkien, J. R. R..
