Approx. 3,930 words.
Published on May 18, 2010.
An epic tale of adventure told in verse, with lines in traditional Anglo-Saxon. Discussed and approved by scholars. Includes full introduction and translation notes.
Fyrdhwæt is unloved and rejected by his people. Valiantly he slays three terrible monsters, but his bravery goes un-acclaimed. The poem is romantic, sad, exciting and very much open to interpretation.
