Beowulf Podcast Instructions

The difference between listening and reading Beowulf is style. It is very complicated to read Beowulf because the language and word choice is not the style of today. Listening to it brings some words and phrases into context better with expression and tone. Listening to Beowulf is easier because it was written to be heard rather than read. The rythme the poem has is easier to follow when read.
