    When this book first appeared in 1981 it challenged the accepted view of Beowulf as dating from the early 8th century, focused attention on the early 11th century manuscript in which the poem is preserved and provoked highly productive debate on its ultimate origin. This 1996 edition of Kiernan's seminal work includes a new foreword by Katherine O'Brien O'Keeffe and additional material by the author including the results of fibre-optic research: 'The State of the Beowulf Manuscript, 1882-1983'.
