After studying Beowulf for over seven years Mr. Whitaker has produced his own
storytelling interpretation of this ancient masterpiece. His depiction of this archaic text was conceived to be as much
like the original in feel and presentation as possible. This version was developed to make it more interesting and
understandable to a modern day audience and yet capture how it might have sounded in medieval times.
