Beowulf

HideShow resource information
Opening and closing with the depiction of a funeral
[Beowulf] is a profoundly retrospective poem (Luizza)
1 of 9
he seeks not to be rich
but to be remmebered (Luizza)
2 of 9
Shield Sheafing had all the clans "yield to him/
and pay him tribute. That was one good King."
3 of 9
He relied for help on the Lord of All/
On His care and favour
4 of 9
I hereby renounce the sword
hand-to-hand combat is how it will be
5 of 9
people happy, loud and excited
out of the night came the shadow-stalker
6 of 9
a fiend out of hell,/
began to work his evil in the world
7 of 9
It is always better/ to avenge dear ones
than to indulge in mourning
8 of 9
But the Lord was weaving/
a victory on His war-loom for the Weather-Geats
9 of 9
