Summary:
My essay is the result of an attempt to re-examine certain cruces of Beowulf, some textual, some interpretative, some both, under the now widely accepted belief that Tolkien and Miss Whitelock are correct in their assertions that the poem is a meaningful work of art and that it was addressed to a Christian audience by a Christian poet. - Introduction.
