Featuring essays from some of the most prominent voices in early medieval studies, Dating Beowulf playfully redeploys the word ‘dating’, which usually heralds some of the most divisive critical impasses in the field, to provocatively phrase a set of new relationships with an Old English poem. The volume argues for the relevance of the early Middle Ages to affect studies and vice-versa, offering a riposte to antifeminist discourse and opening avenues for future work by specialists in the history of emotions, literary theorists, students of Old English literature and medieval scholars alike. To this end, the essays embody a range of critical approaches from queer theory to animal studies and ecocriticism to actor-network theory.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'...the collection offers an opportunity to see the poem anew, from unexpected angles and in sometimes surprising contexts. At the same time, it models a kind of intellectual enterprise that welcomes new readers and encourages them to pay attention to where, how, and why they feel their own investments in the poem.'Modern Philology 'a delight to read. The quality of its fourteen essays is uniformly high, evidence of careful and thoughtful work on the part of both authors and editors.'Modern Philology 'One of the great delights of this book is how frequently contributors refer to other chapters and how many thematic clusters emerge. What really unites the collection is not a single definition of intimacy, but an attitude toward or orientation to the field of early medieval studies, one driven by a spirit of playfulness, openness, and accessibility. The fourteen essays sparkle with brilliant writing and a sense of shared joy in reading and writing about Beowulf.'Arthuriana - .
