Nokes on Beowulf etc

Readers of the Great Nokes over at Unlocked Wordhoard (see our blogroll) has mentioned a piece he's written and published in the Old English Newsletter. I received my copy of OEN's latest last night and read Scott's article Beowulf: Prince of the Geats, Nazis, and Odinists. Scott talks chiefly about the movie in the title and various modern, cultural reactions to it, though those reactions are not based in scholarly reactions, but in other sorts of things. Well done Scott! The piece is of great interest and it has now appeared on the OEN website, just follow the link.
