The first work of literature in the English language ends with a question: “What will happen now?” With Beowulf’s death, his people would be unprotected. What will happen now? For over a thousand years that question went unanswered. Six years ago, I published Beyond Beowulf and that question was answered. Wiglaf, Beowulf’s young companion in the fight against the dragon became the new leader and helped the tribe find a new home in spite of storms and trolls and a Saxon army. But the question was answered from a warrior’s viewpoint. Wasn’t there a need for a broader perspective? What about Wiglaf’s wife and family?
Now the publication of The Beowulf Trilogy provides the complete picture. Here we have the text of Beowulf provided in a new alliterated translation. Here we have the missing larger perspective in Yrfa’s Tale.
