Many consider Beowulf tedious to read, difficult to teach, and therefore, hard to enjoy. Others claim it is too simple, too direct, or too pagan (or too Christian!). Yet, despite such criticisms, Beowulf will not go away. In this webinar, Brian Phillips takes another look at Beowulf and the surprising harmony, richness, and importance of the poem which, as Tolkien said, made “keen that touch upon the heart which sorrows have that are both poignant and remote.”
In this webinar, you will:
· Discuss responses to the common criticisms of Beowulf
· Grow to understand the important place the poem has in Western literature
· Explore connections between the poem and other classic works
· Receive tips for reading and teaching Beowulf
· And much more!
