him in lumps, leaving the body utterly lifeless, eaten up hand and foot. The hall clattered and hammered He had conjured the harm from the cutting edge of every weapon.

The epic poem, Beowulf, by an unknown author, shows that it was important for the English culture of the High Middle Ages to remember sagas in order to promote and preserve Anglo Saxon moral codes. For instance, one example calls for leaders to inspire loyalty with in his soliders by giving freely so that they will stand by him in the mists of battle. This

code was important because it helped the soliders trust that they were not going to war with a selfish leader. This code became important in the High Middle Ages because in order for Kings to maintain their power they needed loyal subjects and warriors to build the kingdom.

The epic poem Beowulf, from an unknown author shows that it was important for the English Culture of the High Middle Ages to remember sagas in order to promote and preserve Anglo Saxon moral codes. Anglo Saxon moral codes include, loyalty, brotherly love, heroism, and generosity. Men of the High Middle Ages give their loyalty to the King and the King would dispense his God-given goods to young and old,

expressing his generosity. If the King did not express any generosity toward the men fighting for him he would lose loyalty and potentially be abandoned. In todays society loyalty, brotherly love, heroism, and generosity help in any situation. Much like the Anglo-Saxons, the military counts on these moral codes.

In the epic poem Beowulf, from an unknown author, it was important for Beowulf and Hrothgar to drink and feast the night before the battle with Grendel because it symbolized the bond they had just made, as if they were brothers. Though they didnt know each other very well, the bond they created made Hrothgar

say Neverhave I entrustedanyone but (Beowulf). This helped give Beowulf more reason to fight. The feasting gave Beowulf more reason to fight; to help and protect a brother. In the epic poem Beowulf by an unknown author it is important for Beowulf and Hrothgar to drink and feast

the night before the battle with Grendel because it was a way for Anglo-Saxon men to solidify their bond or alliance. Beowulf arrived at Heorot to help the king. After explaining his intentions and introducing himself a bench was cleared in the banquet hall so the Geats could have room to be togetherAnd the minstrel sang, filling Heorot with his head-clearing voice, gladdening

that great rally of Geats and Danes.The drinking and feast was a celebration, welcoming the Geats help and alligence. It also represents how even before Beowulf fought Grendel he was already returning Heorot to its former days of wassail and glory. Exchange your essay with a partner.

In a well organized essay, and using textual evidence, choose one of the many themes in Beowulf and describe a literary device which best implements that theme.

it seems it may Annotation step 7 In the folk epic Beowulf by an unknown author, the author employs allusions to invoke the theme of divine intervention.

Everything is God-given and is seen as allowed by God in the Anglo-Saxon culture. The author references God and his influence over mans decisiveness to effectively immerse God and Christianity into the story. Most of todays society believes in divine intervention and control

of God over all mankind. In the epic folktale Beowulf, metaphors are used to implement the theme of Divine Influence. When all seems lost in Beowulfs fight with Grendels mother a sword that only Beowulf could wield it in a battle suddenly appeared to him. This sword represents the

Divine influence of God by helping him win the battle. Without the help of God Beowulf would have certainly died, instead an intervention by God symbolized thoug a mighty powerful sword. This divine intervention in the form of a sword helps to shape the role that God will play throughout the epic.

Throughout the epic poem Beowulf, written by an unknown author, the theme of divine influence is illustrated through a majority of allusions. Two very prominent parallels the story makes to Jesus sacrificial death meant to save the Christians, and the Last Supper. Just as Jesus sacrificed himself to give Christians the opportunity of eternal life, Beowulf willingly took on the deadly task of attempting to defeat Grendel even though he may perishin the fiends clutches.(636) A

parallel to the Last Supper is illustrated when the Helming woman urges Beowulf to drink deep and enjoy, (617) because she fears it may be Beowulfs last night on earth just as it was Jesus last night. The allusions enhance the theme of divine influence and are meant instill religious values in its audience. The authors purpose for attempting to instill religious values in the audience is to pass along his or her own Christian beliefs and also to reiterate the importance of having morals.

Divine influence plays a major role in Beowulf, emphisised by christian monks for the epic saga. God is constantly weaving a victory for Beowulf and his thanes. Blunt use of praise to God as metaphors to the awesome power of the

christian faith lace God into the folktale. In times of distruction, mass amounts of people look for saftey, the christian authors job is to bring people closer to God and out of evil. Correction

In the epic poem Beowulf, written by a unknown author, it is important for Beowulf and Hrothgar to feast and drink before the battle with Grendel because it fulfills their desire to live their possible last days to the fullest. Diction such as proud and strong portray the fear and anxiety that accompany battle as a fleeting feeling when celebrating. This can be seen in modern times when

people are diagnosed with a terminal disease and want to accomplish certain things before they pass. They want to end life enjoying company and other blessings. Therefore the feast directly relates to modern times. (Lines 1650-2195) Be prepared to answer your

The father and son relationship has defined societies across the globe and across time. The saga of Beowulf in which the author is unknown is the setting in which this relationship is best portrayed. The complex relationship of Hrothgar and Beowulf is explored through characterization and the way these characters are presented. The relationship of Beowulf and Hrothgar becomes complex as the two characters become closer, indeed as a father and son. As Beowulf left Hrothgar, probably the last

time these men would face each other, Hrothgar offered fatherly advise to his near son as he told Beowulf, Choose, dear Beowulf, the better part, eternal rewards. This is significant because these men began as distant cousins, barley knowing one another, but by the time Beowulf is prepared to leave, the wise Hrothgar is worried for his future, imparting the wisdom that only a father would give his devoted son. This becomes the most important narrative of the story as this complex new relationship takes form and grows and changes into a close familial bond.

Characterization and the development of these characters is employed by the author to explore the intricate relationship between these two Anglo-Saxon warriors. The world is filled with many complex relationships built upon different personalities.

After the dragon wakes, what is his strategy for attacking civilization? How does Beowulf find out about the dragon?

Why doesnt Beowulf recruit an army to face the dragon? Who was Heardred? How does Beowulf treat Heardred? What is Heardreds fate? How does Heardreds fate affect Beowulf? What does reconnoiter mean? What does Beowulf do to the person who woke the dragon?

Explain the line Now blade and hand, sword and sword-stroke, will assay the hoard. What boast does Beowulf make about fighting the dragon? Why doesnt Beowulf fight the dragon hand to hand? What is Beowulfs men reaction to the dragon? Who is Wiglaf? What does Wiglaf tell the rest of Beowulfs men? What is Naegling and what happens to it?

How does Beowulf die? What does Beowulf use to kill the dragon? Just before he dies, what does Beowulf tell Wiglaf? What is done with the dragon's hoard? What does Beowulf order Wiglaf to build?
