Resumo

El texto busca analizar semántica y culturalmente la expresión fīfẹlcynnes earden el poema épico-elegíaco anglosajón Beowulf. El análisis se enfoca centralmente en el primero de esos términos (fīfẹl-), particularmente complejo en su explicación, con referencia particular a sus lazos con la imaginería bíblica y dos literaturas vernáculas cercanas al texto anglosajón, la irlandesa y la nórdica antigua. El texto propone que, a diferencia de una asociación directa con un carácter llanamente monstruoso, habitual en las traducciones, la expresión se refiere a un espacio de salvajismo y desmesura.
