Very pretty, but you must not call it Beowulf

There is some pleasure to be had from this recording: I always enjoy listening to Flo Gibson, and you could make a reasonable argument that the comfortable rhyme employed by this translation substitutes for the less familiar technical aspects of Old English poetry. But ultimately it just doesn't do a very good job capturing the effect of the poem. It's less an heroic song than a winter's tale, told around the fire to children.
