It thereby creates new relationships with an Old English poem that has not seen a radical reconsideration of its position within the field of literary studies for at least a decade.In addition to serving as a touchstone for critics engaged in debates about the future of early medieval studies, the book also opens affect to a premodern archive and vice-versa. It addresses urgent contemporary issues such as ecological imperialism and toxic masculinity, mobilizing queer and feminist readings in order expose the study of Old English literature to a more diverse range of voices and approaches. Featuring essays from some of the most prominent figures in the field, the book provides an alternative to the increasingly outmoded companions to the poem currently available, and will be useful to advanced undergraduate and graduate students as well as to scholars and teachers at all levels.As these essays reveal, the intimacies within Beowulf ultimately escape the charged confines of the poem, which remains - perhaps paradoxically - anonymous and undated. Dating Beowulf opens new avenues for future work by specialists in the history of emotions, literary theorists, students of Old English literature, and medieval scholars alike.\" -- Back cover.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"1.
