Sheild, Hrothgar, & Grendel

We started looking the Seamus Heaney translation of the epic poem Beowulf today.  Today read the first 144 lines of the poem. We’ll spend a lot of time tomorrow going over them tomorrow. We were able to clearly establish that the author is a Christian.  he makes reference over and over again to God & The Lord Almighty.
