Beowulf: The Monsters and the Critics was the Sir Israel Gollancz Memorial Lecture for 1936. Tolkien delivered it to the British Academy on 25 November 1936 and again two weeks later to the Manchester Mediaeval Society.

This publication appears to be a copy of a typescript with some handwritten amendments. When it was offered for sale, the catalogue description recorded it as being prepared by Tolkien as a handout, and made available at his lecture to the British Academy.
