Beowulf Live: Reclaiming the Classics on WPR

Jim Flemming over at To the Best of Our Knowledge has interviewed translator Dick Ringler, and in the process broadcast part of his audio drama of Beowulf. So we got to listen to Grendel gorging flesh and griding bone in the mini-van on the way home from church today.

Plus Michael Dirda on reading the Classics for Pleasure, a little Jane Austen, and a little War & Peace – in Russian and in English!

Wonderful conversations, on a wonderful radio show! Listen to it here: To the Best of Our Knowledge on Wisconsin Public Radio.
