Burton died September 29th, 2015. He led a remarkable life as a writer, translator, poet, and professor. I had this video made for family, friends and book lovers everywhere. Please share it. I'd like as many people as possible to see this collection. Burton was best known for his translation of the Old English epic Beowulf, which is widely used in teaching. He published more than 100 books in his life including translations from numerous languages, poetry, short stories, a novel, and critical studies.
