  • An interview with Benjamin Bagby and a discussion with Beowulf scholars John Miles Foley, Thomas Cable and Mark Amodio.


Award-winning Swedish director Stellan Olsson captures Benjamin Bagby's bardic telling of the epic medieval poem in this filmed performance of the one-man show that has kept audiences captivated since 1990. J.R.R. Tolkien enthusiasts, medievalists, and anyone interested in great storytelling will surely enjoy this timeless tale told in Old English and featuring the Anglo-Saxon harp. This is a tale presented just as it would have been hundreds of years ago, without the aid of modern special effects or technology. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
