The translation of Beowulf by J.R.R. Tolkien was an early work, very distinctive in its mode, completed in 1926: he returned to it later to make hasty corrections, but seems never to have considered its publication. This edition is twofold, for there exists an illuminating commentary on the text of the poem by the translator himself, in the written form of a series of lectures given at Oxford in the 1930s; and from these lectures a substantial selection has been made, to form also a commentary on the translation in this book. From his creative attention to detail in these lectures there arises a sense of the immediacy and clarity of his vision. It is as if he entered into the imagined past: standing beside Beowulf and his men shaking out their mail-shirts as they beached their ship on the coast of Denmark, listening to the rising anger of Beowulf at the taunting of Unferth, or looking up in amazement at Grendel's terrible hand set under the roof of Heorot. But the commentary in this book includes also much from those lectures in which, while always anchored in the text, he expressed his wider perceptions. He looks closely at the dragon that would slay Beowulf "snuffling in baffled rage and injured greed when he discovers the theft of the cup"; but he rebuts the notion that this is "a mere treasure story", "just another dragon tale". He turns to the lines that tell of the burying of the golden things long ago, and observes that it is "the feeling for the treasure itself, this sad history" that raises it to another level. "The whole thing is sombre, tragic, sinister, curiously real. The 'treasure' is not just some lucky wealth that will enable the finder to have a good time, or marry the princess. It is laden with history, leading back into the dark heathen ages beyond the memory of song, but not beyond the reach of imagination." Sellic Spell, a "marvellous tale", is a story written by Tolkien suggesting what might have been the form and style of an Old English folk-tale of Beowulf, in which there was no association with the "historical legends" of the Northern kingdoms.

Tolkien, der wichtigste Fantasyautor der Neuzeit, wendet sich einem der größten Sagenstoffe aller Zeiten zu: der Sage von König Arthur. Ein Poem von berückender Schönheit. Das große Epos um Arthur erzählt, wie der tapfere König sich zum Waffengang ostwärts in ferne, heidnische Länder begibt. Während der König außer Landes kämpft, verliebt sich der Ritter Lancelot in Arthurs Frau Guinever und schafft damit einen unüberwindlichen Konflikt. Als auch noch der verräterische Mordred die Macht an sich zu reißen versucht, treibt die Handlung einem Abgrund entgegen ... Neben der Edda und dem Nibelungenlied ist die Arthursage die wichtigste Quelle aller neueren Fantasyliteratur, die hier erstmals in J. R. R. Tolkiens eigener Fassung vorliegt. Neben der kongenialen Übersetzung von Hans-Ulrich Möhring enthält diese Ausgabe auch den Text des englischen Originals.

Gibt es ein Werk, das für uns so wichtig und prägend ist wie Ilias und Odyssee für die Antike? »Ja!«, sagt der Erfinder der modernen Fantasy: Die nordische Sage von Sigurd und Gudrún! Und J.R.R.Tolkien dichtete selbst den ehernen Stoff der Edda und des Wölsungenlieds für unsere Zeit neu. Lesen Sie, wie Sigurd den fürchterlichen Drachen Fáfnir tötet. Wie er die schlafende Brynhild erweckt aus einem Feuerwall. Und wie am Hof der Nibelungen große Liebe entbrannte und auch großer Hass. Tolkien schöpft hier ein Werk von unvergleichlicher Sprachkraft und einem Rhythmus, der alle Sinne erfasst. Der reich kommentierte Band gibt Tolkiens Originalverse neben der deutschen Übersetzung wieder.

Kleopatra, Königin von Ägypten, ist verzweifelt: Octavian, der Heerführer Roms, steht mit seinen Truppen vor den Toren Alexandrias und droht die Stadt zu vernichten. Als dann auch noch Kleopatras große Liebe, ihr Ehemann Markus Antonius, Selbstmord begeht, ist die Königin wild entschlossen, weder ihre Liebe noch ihr Land aufzugeben. In einem uralten Ritual beschwört sie Sachmet, die altägyptische Göttin des Krieges, herauf. Mit ihrer Hilfe will sie Octavian besiegen und Markus Antonius vom Tod zurückholen. Doch die Anrufung Sachmets bringt keine Rettung, sondern verwandelt Kleopatra gegen ihren Willen in eine Kreatur der Dunkelheit. Daraufhin ist Kleopatra entschlossener denn je, Rache zu nehmen – an Octavian und an der Göttin.

A stunning experimental translation of the Old English poem "Beowulf," over 30 decades old and woefully neglected, by the contemporary poet Thomas Meyer, who studied with Robert Kelly at Bard, and emerged from the niche of poets who had been impacted by the brief moment of cross-pollination between U.K. and U.S. experimental poetry in the late 1960s and early 1970s, a movement inspired by Ezra Pound, fueled by interactions among figures like Ed Dorn, J.H. Prynne, and Basil Bunting, and quickly overshadowed by the burgeoning Language Writing movement. Meyer's translation -- completed in 1972 but never before published -- is sure to stretch readers' ideas about what is possible in terms of translating Anglo-Saxon poetry, as well as provide new insights on the poem itself. According to John Ashberry, Meyer's translation of this thousand-year-old poem is a "wonder," and Michael Davidson hails it as a "major accomplishment" and a "vivid" recreation of this ancient poem's "modernity."
