'It has been said of Beowulf itself that its weakness lies in placing the unimportant things at the centre and the important on the outer edges. (...) I think it profoundly untrue of the poem, but strikingly true of the literature about it.'
(J.R.R. Tolkien, "Beowulf: The Monsters and the Critics")
