Going All the Way with Beowulf

Are you geeky? Geeky enough to enjoy Beowulf in any form?  Geeky enough to hear it recited in Old English?  Geeky enough to watch Benjamin Bagby accompany his recitation with the Anglo-Saxon lyre? Dang, I’m impressed! Thanks to Greg Kamiya and his Salon essay, Beowulf vs. The Lord of the Rings. Kamiya writes, “There’s no real reason to take on Beowulf unless you want to go all the way.”
