pstrongPresented by Robert Bjork/strongbr / strongFoundation Professor of English and Director of the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies (ACMRS) at ASU/strongbr / nbsp;br / This event will be an exploration of how, from the unique manuscript discovered in the British Museum in the late 18th century, the Old English epic poemnbsp;emBeowulf/emnbsp;has spread its power throughout the world in editions, translations, literature, art, music, movies, television, and video games. We will examine the many guises both the character and the poem Beowulf have had since the publication of the first edition of the Old English epic in 1815 to Beowulf (99 Luftballons by Nena) and two operas./p p nbsp;/p
