Hello all, I am currently reading my Beowulf copy (a translation by Gummere I think) and I cannot find an untranslated copy ANYWHERE. Do any of you happen to know of one, or have one? If you do, the publisher, edition etc would be of extreme value...my greatest desire at the moment is to read it in all its untranslated glory!
Thanks,
Bexter
(apologies for the weird formal letter style of that...it must have been the greatness of Beowulf wandering across my keyboard)

There's a copy free online at Google Books (link) with facsimile of the MS and Old English on facing pages. Late 19th century critical edition.


Ceci n'est pas un seing.
