A friend who was a Harvard grad in English and PhD from UVA in Anglo-Saxon gave the translation an A-.

He gave no other translation higher than a C+, though he confessed to loving Klaeber's for nostalgic reasons.

I was thrilled merely to have heard of both translators, and nodded in dumb agreement.
