About the Author:

Dr. Anderson is Professor Emeritus at Cleveland State University, where he taught courses in Literature and Linguistics and served as Department Chair and Dean.

"... sure to generate controversy in Old English circles, but also to create excitement in comparative Indo-European mythological ones.... In sum, the book promises to revolutionize the study of Beowulf and to open it up to other comparativists." - Prof. John Colarusso McMaster University"
