Today's Dose

August 29
Selected by Sam from Lubbock, Texas
Beowulf: A Translation and Commentary
Beowulf: A Translation and Commentary
by J.R.R. Tolkien and Christopher Tolkien

Sam's Comments:
"This edition of 'Beowulf,' in addition to being one of the best translations I've read, including Haney's, had a number of positive effects on me. It gave me a much deeper appreciation of the poem and its historical significance as one of an extremely small number of extant cultural works by the Anglo-Saxons and their world....It's a dense, but rewarding, read, for beginners and established Anglo-Saxon aficionados alike, straight from the notes and writings of one of the 20th century's most pre-eminent scholars on the subject."

How The Dose Works

Seven days a week, the Powells.com Daily Dose brings a reader's review to your Inbox — along with a chance to win free books!

Each day shortly after midnight we post the day's featured item on our web site and in our email to Daily Dose subscribers. The reader whose comments we use has until day's end (11:59 p.m. Pacific Time) to visit our special contest page and claim the prize. Each day we add $20 credit to the available total — until someone wins free books. Then the next day it all starts again.

To enter, write a short review of any item on Powells.com that you think we should tell Daily Dose subscribers about.
