If you're looking for a translation that'll keep you awake and enjoying the poem and you can't read Old English (I'd highly recommend this to high school English teachers seeking to teach the poem, since maintaining attention here is probably more important than anything) this is a great choice. If you're looking for something that gets more at the text, look elsewhere.
