Beowulf: A Double Take

How much do I love this:

Look here:

First of all, I love that it is a Bilingual edition. As in, English and Of course, I mean Old and Modern. But click on Inside this Book, and look closer at the cover. There's a little sticker that says, Winner of the Whitbread Award. The first time I saw it, I thought it said...

Winner of the White-bread Award.

Yet, how fitting for the White Anglo-Saxon Protestants (or Pagans) they were. (anybody remember the '70's term WASP's?)

To read about the Whitbread Awards, see here.
