Looks at Beowulf in its literary context. This work intends to show how the typological perspective manifests itself throughout Beowulf in its structure and its imagery and so aims to foster an increased awareness of the rich allusiveness of its metaphorical language.

Dr. William Helder served as teacher and administrator at Guido de Bres Christian High School, Hamilton, Ontario, and was awarded Canada Council Fellowship. He received his Ph.D. in English from McMaster University.Review:
"The search-through the lines of the poem, through biblical and patristic texts, through other Old English poetry, and through antecedent scholarship about the "Christian elements" in Beowulf-is detailed, extensive, and judicious... This welcome book casts a great deal of light on one of the verbal treasures of our culture." (Dr. Alvin A. Lee, President Emeritus, McMaster University)
