Beowulf Poem

An ancient saga of heroism in which the hero Beowulf had to defend the halls of Heorot against the evil Grendel, which has recently been re-translated by Sheamus Heaney. You can download an older copy of Beowulf available for free from Project Gutenberg.

It has been the inspiration for the naming of a lot of the technology involved in Beowulf Clusters, a new method of producing highly parallel supercomputers for smaller prices.
