Beowulf on Tape

Michael Drout has finished a commercial recording, to be released sometime in the future.

Recorded Books will be publishing the Beowulf reading later this year, bundled in a special offer for one of their programs that hasn't been completely decided yet, but I retained the rights to sell it on its own, and I'm working right now to put together some kind of inexpensive and interesting package. I did a short lecture on Beowulf as well that goes before the reading itself, and the entire thing takes up three CDs.

I shudder to think what an Old English scholar thinks an inexpensive price is for an audio edition of Beowulf.
