Abstract:

With the intensity and commitment of an ancient Norse warrior, Benjamin Bagby brings the epic poem Beowulf to incandescent life. This program documents Bagby's brilliant iteration of the saga before a live audience in Helsingborg, Sweden-demonstrating the spellbinding qualities of both the poem and the performer. Reciting the entire 1,062-line Grendel story in the original Old English and accompanying himself on an authentic Anglo-Saxon harp, Bagby offers viewers an in-depth, richly textured look at the tale as it would have enthralled listeners 1,000 years ago. Modern English subtitles included. This edition features Bagby's complete performance.
