Beowulf

by Tolkien, J R R

On 25 November 1936, Tolkien delivered “Beowulf: The Monsters and the Critics” to the British Academy, and it was published the next year in the Academy's proceedings. The essay was a redaction of lectures that Tolkien wrote between 1933 and 1936, “Beowulf and the Critics.” ([Source][1].) These editions are reprints of the [Sir Israel Gollancz][2] memorial lecture in 1936, noted in the Proceedings of the [British Academy][3], London, v. 22 (1937). Here's a [review on Medieval Forum written by Tom Sharpe][4].
