I’m a PhD candidate writing my dissertation on portrayals of the soul-body relationship in medieval English literature, starting with the Exeter-Vercelli Soul and Body poem(s) and ending, perhaps oddly, with Milton’s Paradise Lost.  Angels tie it all together; trust me.  My MA thesis was on gift exchange and monstrosity in Beowulf.

    Hi there–

    I came across your blog(s) while combing for Old English/Medieval interest groups. I’d love to send you information about a new translation & stage adaptation of BEOWULF. I’m trying to spread the word to those folks who’d really care and be the most invested; I’ve contacted specific scholars and editors, etc, but I figured contacting people like you was a great way to get the word out.

    I’d be really happy to send you the full information if you like; email me and I’ll send it your way!

    Many thanks,

    Lyssa Mandel
