Week Eleven: Epic

'Tis the hour upon which this week's topic is bestowed upon thee. Prepare thineselves, for the Epic shall be conquered in a half-fortnight. Pray nary the faint hearted nor the weak biled be overcome by the depth of this week's task.

But ye olde' jesting aside. At left is a lithograph by Rockwell Kent dating back to 1931, Beowulf and the Dragon, based on the Scandanavian/Anglo-Saxon/Geatish epic poem. Gotta' love them Geats.

Be sure to check next week for the results, participants welcome. Until then, we bid you good morrow.
