Before Tolkien's 1936 essay, Beowulf Monsters and The Critics, Beowulf scholarship was dominated by the big three, F Klaeber, R W Chambers and the lesser known W W Lawrence, each producing classic works on Beowulf. Lawrence's Beowulf and The Epic Tradition is not quite as good as Chambers' Introduction to Beowulf or Klaeber's edition, it's still worth a read for the opinions of the major American Beowulf scholars point of view.
