The Story of Beowulf
by Strafford Riggs
[1933, not renewed]
This is a long out-of-print retelling of the Beowulf saga. A prose translation, it captures the mood of the original without being self-consciously archaic. The black and white illustrations are stylized and sometimes a bit cartoonish, and nicely dimensionalize the story.
