Hi juniors and seniors,
Here’s the 50 lines or so of Beowulf I’d like you to look at if you didn’t finish the work in class on Friday. The PDF is below. You’re looking at lines 311 – 352. (Beowulf’s speech to King Hrothgar.)

-What is obedience?
-Why are humans obedient?
–How does this explain elements of our society?
