Volume 248 in the Medieval and Renaissance Texts and Studies series.

Beowulf and the Critics was written in the 1930s and was probably delivered as a series of lectures to undergraduates. Tolkien's highly influential lecture, Beowulf: The Monsters and the Critics, was a redaction of this work. This edition of Tolkien's lecture series includes both versions of the text together with detailed explanatory notes.

Also included are two versions of the poem Iumonna Gold Galdre Bewunden (previously published in 1923 and 1937 respectively) along with an intermediate version (printed twice, the first time without the final stanza).

At least three impressions issued.

A third impression copy has been seen with a grey stripe across the bottom right corner of the dustwrapper stating "Winner of the 2003 Mythopoeic Scholarship Award in Inklings Studies".
