Mother-Tongue is a poem by [personal profile] jjhunter about Beowulf's mother, and Grendel's. Skillfully crafted in the style of Seamus Heaney's modern english translation of the anglo saxon epic, it reads like an excerpt of the original poem.

Just wanted to let you know that I periodically come back & look at this -- the detail on the boats is amazing, and I love how that band effectively conveys the state of war/tension between the two parallel story bands & the way that violence as a way of life knits the two tales together.

The fresco is coming along nicely; I like the border on the bottom, and the story is cleared now with both rows.

there's a lot of emotion clear in the bottom panel. I like that.
