J.R.R. Tolkien's "Beowulf: A Translation And Commentary" Book To Be Published May 22

I know that "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit" are two of the famous works of JRR Tolkien which have been adapted into motion pictures within the last decades up until today but I didn't know that Tolkien also wrote a translation of the 11th-century epic poem "Beowulf", until today. And his son Christopher Tolkien edited and finalized the piece which was initially completed by his father in 1926.

For the first time in 88 years since its completion this version of Beowulf will be available for public to read and see this hero who defeated Grendel through JRR Tokien's words. This book includes the 90-page translation from Old English and 320 pages of notes, stories, and other Tolkien work inspired by the poem.
