Abstract

The epic Scandinavian poem Beowulf is an exciting but somewhat violent tale of the warrior and hero of its title. The tale recounts how Beowulf defeats the monster Grendel and Grendel’s mother and how fifty years later he must take up his sword, Naegling, again to defend his people against a dragon. This Random House edition contains Rockwell Kent’s interpretation of Beowulf and his companion, Wiglaf, fighting the dragon. Kent (1882-1971) studied architecture at Colombia University and art at the New York School of Art. An early modernist, his work complements those held within Special Collections by British artists Robert Gibbings and Eric Gill, and Lynd Ward, another American artist.
