The original poem uses approximately three thousand lines of text to tell Beowulf’s story. Although this poem is usually considered a short classic, it’s lengthy compared to Gareth Hinds’s adaptation, which conveys the tale in about five hundred lines. How do you think the exchange of words for images might change your experience of the story?

The imagery is almost like a graphic novel, to me anyway, and is vivid. Pictures often say much more than words.
