The Adventures of Wiglaf the Wyrm
Table of Contents. Related Content. Editor: Weijers. The grand duchy of Luxembourg was created after the Napoleonic Wars, but at the time there was no 'nation' that identified with the emergent state. This book analyses how politicians, scholars and artists have initiated and contributed to nation-building processes in Luxembourg since the nineteenth century, processes that — as this book argues — are still ongoing.
The focus rests on three types of representations of nationhood: a shared past, a common homeland and a national language.

History was written so as to justify the country's political independence. Territorial borders shifted meaning, constantly repositioning the national community. The local dialect — initially considered German variant — was gradually transformed into the 'national language', Luxembourgish. Montaigne and the Low Countries It had a section about Grendel, and as I was already fascinated with Star Wars and The Hobbit , it just seemed to fit.
My mom subscribed to Childcraft books, and their annual, Great Myths and Legends , had this amazingly illustrated section on Beowulf and his battle with the dragon. This occurred around the time I turned ten. I remember being the only senior who loved it.
The dragon (Beowulf)
It became my favorite story outside of my normal sci-fi, horror, and fantasy tropes. When I went to college, I took courses I knew would have Beowulf somewhere in the mix. I loved to write, but poetry seemed to define me. At this time I was teaching middle school English. I wanted to make Beowulf into something fun; enjoyable. I wanted to remain faithful to its roots so it could be used academically as well as for entertainment.
Hence Beowulf: The Midgard Epic burst from my mind and onto the blank pages before me. My version also includes an old poem called The Wanderer , where I conclude that its narrator must be Wiglaf, the young warrior who aids Beowulf fight the dragon. Again, I want this to be everywhere, and appeal to as many different areas as possible.

My first major film to watch in the theater came in the form of a little movie we call Star Wars. My favorite story my mom tells happened when I was in kindergarten. I wanted to stay in and write stories and illustrate them.
Art; poetry; story telling … they are my life. Well, thankfully the wait is not long at all.
