'Like Venus, my head spins in a different direction to the majority; like Triton, I orbit in one direction and my world turns in another.' Julian Yaqub
Beowulf: A Verse Translation
Winner of the Whitbread Prize, Seamus Heaney’s translation 'accomplishes what before now had seemed impossible: a faithful rendering that is simultaneously an original and gripping poem in its own right' (New York Times Book Review).
The translation that 'rides boldly through the reefs of scholarship' (The Observer) is combined with first-rate annotation. No reading knowledge of Old English is assumed. Heaney’s introduction to Beowulf provides students with an understanding of both the poem’s history in the canon and Heaney’s own translation process.

Four Horsemen, Ross Ashcroft, 2012
Twenty-three leading thinkers explain how the world really works and the fundamental flaws in the economic system which have brought our civilization to the brink of disaster. The film pulls no punches in describing the consequences of continued inaction – but its message is one of hope. If more people can equip themselves with a better understanding of how the world really works, then the systems and structures that condemn billions to poverty or chronic insecurity can at last be overturned.
