Today in class we read up to line #1303.
Once you finished reading we answered two questions:
1) Are there any images, situations or anything else that you recognize in Beowulf from other legends or stories?
2) Look back at your list of archetypes from the beginning of the year (or here: Archetype checklist) and check all that apply so far to Beowulf. Do we see the beginning of hero stories with Beowulf? Can we make predictions about the rest of the story based on what we know about these archetypes?
Read to line 1630. Start at “The Fire Dragon and the Treasure.” beowulf-3
In the comments below, expand on what you wrote in class for these questions. Pick an image or archetype and explain how it connects between Beowulf and the story of your choice. How has the image changed from story to story, and does that reflect on changes in the culture of where the story is from?
