Superheroes – 9/8 Beowulf continued

Today we continued reading Beowulf in class, getting to line 650. We paused on Beowulf’s big speech on page 13 to address the following question:
–What are the values of the Danish and Geat societies, and where do we see these qualities in our hero, Beowulf?

*As always, use evidence from the text.

For homework:
Read the next two sections: The “The Feast” and “The Troll-Wife Avenges Grendel.” This will bring you to line 910. Here’s a pdf of the text: beowulf
