Excerpt from The Adventures of Beowulf: Translated From the Old English and Adapted to the Use of Schools

F any one were to ask you why you are proud of England, and why you would rather belong to it than to any other country in the world, you would no doubt have a great many answers ready. You might say, because it is so rich, or so powerful, or because the people living in it have so much liberty. But perhaps one reason for admiring and loving it would not occur to you till the last; yet it is a very good one, and one that seems better and better the older you grow, and the more you read and learn. And it is this. England has had better writers and poets than any other land except Greece; as far back as we know anything about our countrymen they were poets as well as soldiers and sailors. But the soldiers and sailors and poets all helped to make one another famous; for the soldiers and sailors did great deeds, and the poets made great verse about them.
