Exactly what I wanted.Reviewed in the United States on 15 August 2016
One of my favorite stories. This is exactly what I was looking for to get yet another idea/interpretation of Beowulf. Cliffs Notes do not tell the story of Beowulf. It only gives some food for thought. I only use CN as a supplement when I read a more difficult text. Now, if Cliffs Notes would do the same for Gilgamesh...
Great study guide, but you must read the book alsoReviewed in the United States on 12 December 2012
I bought this for my daughter since Beowulf is not the easiest thing to read. Her teacher has Spark Notes and Cliff Notes and all other kinds of Notes, so she makes sure the test questions don't come from info covered in the guides. That wasn't an issue because the guide helped my kiddo understand the story, it wasn't just for cramming. Great study aid, but not great if you don't want to read the book.

Cliff Notes : no what I expectedReviewed in the United States on 5 February 2013
I thought it was difficult to work with. Would have preferred a capsulated version. I didnt have the poem in front of me - wanted to explain the story to my grandaughter before watching the movie
