Excerpt from The Deeds of Beowulf: An English Epic of the Eighth Century Done Into Modern Prose
To Hrothgar was given martial Spirit, warlike ambi tion; insomuch that his cousins gladly took him for leader, until the young generation grew up, a mighty regiment of clansmen. In... to his mind it came, that he would give orders for men to construct a hall-building, a great mead-house, (greater) than the children of men 70 had ever heard tell of; and that therewithin he would freely deal out to young and old what God should give him, save people's land and lives of men.
