BEOWULF: A VERSE ADAPTATION WITH YOUNG READERS IN MIND
All Heroes Have Foes To Fight!!!
An adaptation for children and their parents
“Joshua Gray’s poetic re-telling of the Beowulf epic as a tale for children gets to the essence of the action with a use of modern English which is accessible and clear for young minds, listening while busily building their own image-worlds….I have the sense that this new text may well encourage very young listeners…to recall this tale with pleasure and to discover a vibrant curiosity to know more about the doings of Hrothgar, Grendel and Beowulf. It will serve as a wise and entertaining investment in keeping this important story alive and well in our culture’s memory, as oral poetry and a fertile field for imagination, in both children and those who read to them.” — Benjamin Bagby, performer of Beowulf in the original Anglo-Saxon
