2016 Classics Challenge: Beowulf

WHEN I Discovered This Classic
This book is a re-read for me. I read it once in high school and once more about ten years ago.

WHY I Chose to Read It
It has all the elements of an epic adventure.

WHAT Makes It A Classic
Beowulf is one of the oldest poems out there. It's inspired countless authors and is still taught in schools today.

WHAT I Thought of This Classic
Since this was my third time reading it, you might assume that I love it. I do appreciate it and its historical value and there is some really great action scenes in this poem. However, for me, it's good but not great. (Please don't throw stones.)

WILL It Stay A Classic
Absolutely. It's been around this long, and I can't see it going anywhere.

WHO I’d Recommend It To
English majors.
