Today we looked at the arrival of our hero, Beowulf. We discussed how his arrival on the Danish shore must have looked to the coast guardsman. We discussed the hints that the poet gives us about the religious beliefs of the Danes, the Geets, and the poet himself. WE also examined the poet’s use of kennings and alliteration in the first 300 lines.
There is no Beowulf homework, but you should be done with Chapter 28 for the next Mockingbird Monday
