Reading JRR Tolkein's translation of Beowulf is fascinating. Not just for the text itself, but for all the supporting material Christopher Tolkein included. Is some of it terribly dry? Sure. But reading through the man's lecture notes feels like sitting in on one of his college courses and getting a glimpse of the mind that created LotR. It's a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
