VIRTUAL Big Books: Beowulf

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Glencoe Public Library
Virtual

Unsurpassed as a poem of action, Beowulf is no less a poem of meditation, offering a subtle picture of a society simple by modern terms but rich in tradition. Written at a time when the nations of modern Europe were taking shape, the anonymous author draws on a Judeo-Christian world view to imagine the age before his own and to reflect on the forces that dictate the fates of peoples. The group will read Seamus Heaney’s 1999 verse translation with the Old English on the facing page. Our discussion will be divided into three roughly equal parts corresponding to Beowulf’s battles with three monsters of increasing fierceness. 

The discussion will be on Zoom and led by Joseph Alulis, who teaches at the University of Chicago's Graham School and is a longtime leader of Big Books. The Big Books series is presented in partnership with the Friends of the Glencoe Public Library.
