Oh man, I had to read that book in high school too. IT'S SO MCFUCKING BORING.
The only good thing is that after that, you get to read "Grendel" by John Gardener, which is an AMAZING book. The only drawback to that bookm is that to really understand it, you have to read Beowulf. And that is hell.
Hopefully your teacher will be cool like mine and let you guys read "Grendel" next.<P>And hopefully your teacher wont be evil like mine and make the final project for reading both book is having the class enact a court trial of The public vs Grendel. I was Grendel's attorney. I tell ya, it is TOUGH defending a monster who eats people, even when you do have an excellent defense. We did get him off of vandalism charges, though.<P>------------------
