“Beowulf” is the longest surviving poem of Anglo-Saxon England. Beowulf, a young warrior of the Geats, comes to the aid of Hrothgar, king of the Danes. He first fights the hellish Grendel, then struggles with Grendel’s fearsome mother. Later, Beowulf must face his final challenge from a huge dragon. But “Beowulf” is not just an adventure story. Other tales of war, feuding, & loss are interwoven with the main plot in such a way as to force readers to ask questions about the heroic code; equally thought-provoking are the juxtaposition of virtuous & vicious characters, the presence of some women who are helpless victims & others who exert strong influence on men, & above all the fact that the characters are pagan while the poet is clearly Christian.
