The oldest surviving English poem is the epic story of Beowulf, a legendary hero. Despite its age (the manuscript is over 1,000 years old), the events and the characters of the story still excite the modern readers. British Literature students at TIS have enjoyed immersing themselves in the epic battles of the mighty warrior.
“The epic Beowulf is one of the best stories I have ever read” - Kaan.
“The poem describes each scene better than the next, making us feel like there is a real hero amongst us” - Sigve.
“The memory of Beowulf’s grandeur and glory lives on” - Alessia.
