Some exciting news from the world of literature. A new translation of the Anglo-Saxon epic poem, Beowulf is to be published. Some 90 years ago, J. R. R. Tolkien translated the epic tale of the hero Beowulf and his battle with the monster Grendel., but for some reason, Tolkien never submitted the work for publication. Tolkien's son, Christopher Tolkien has contracted to publish the work with publisher HarperCollins. Also to be included in the work, is a series of lectures Tolkien gave about the poem during the 1930s at Oxford University. The book is expected to hit the shelves in late May.

Hey, Kid, this would make a most excellent Mother's Day gift or a birthday gift. Just in case, you need a subtle idea.
