Product Description

Encompassing a wide range of voices the 123 poems collected in The Word Exchange complement the portrait of medieval England that emerges from Beowulf, the most famous Anglo-Saxon poem of all. Brought to life by an all-star cast of contemporary poets, this wonderful collection offers tales of battle, travel, and adventure, but also songs of heartache and longing, as well as, seven "hoards" of delightfully puzzling riddles. The Word Exchange is a landmark work of translation, as fascinating and multivocal as the original literature it translates.
